Well when you stream there is always a cache of at least a portion of the file on the device, and the more you cache the better the performance/quality of the video. This way there is less likely that the sucky data connection will ruin your user experience.

Have you researched this at all? It's an interesting idea, and it's clearly possible, as web sites etc stream video to mobile devices frequently.

Post here with any code/ideas/research you have, as this could turn out to be really interesting.

The latest Windows Mobile/Windows Phone SDKs have a rich Compact Framework Media toolkit, I would say that would be the best bet to start.

Hmmm.... well I guess you need to figure out some way to automatically split the file into chunks, then download a chunk, play it, in a seperate thread download a second chunk, when the first one is finished play the second, delete the first, then download a third.

I can't say I have much expertise in the area, but as I mentioned it's a very interesting idea.

You could look at somthing server side like segmenter


But I have never tried this myself. What progress have you made so far?

Live long and prosper

Hi, I recently read an article (and video) on MSDN about making a Windows Mobile device enter unattended mode instead of suspended mode when the the standby/power button is pressed. This allows applications to continue to run instead of effectively pausing them when the screen is turned off. This is achieved by PInvoking PowerPolicyNotify. I have been developing a WM (PocketPC) application for a while now and testing it on my HTC...

Overview: Windows 11 and 10 have less user interface control over operating system update behaviour than previous versions of Windows. In Windows 11 and 10, there is no way to turn off the Windows Update option using the Control Panel or Settings app; it automatically checks for updates and installs any it finds, whether you like it or not. For most users, this new feature is actually very convenient. If you want to control the update process,...

These AIs are designed to manage the entire lifecycle of a software development project—planning, coding, testing, and deployment—without human intervention. Imagine an AI that can take a project description, break it down, write the code, debug it, and then launch it, all on its own.... Now, this would greatly impact the work of software developers.
