    Playing video file by http link

    Hi all,

    I want to play video file which resides on server.
    I've got a HTTP link to this file.

    Is it possible to play it by built-in engine?

    I tried to put http link to CVideoPlayerUtility::OpenUrlL but it looks like CVideoPlayerUtility wants RTSP links only and OpenComplete fails with -5 (Not supported).

    HTTP is not really suitable for streaming, you should simply download the file instead.

    It's not so good news
    And what about RealPlayer? I see it's able to play HTTP links, i.e. play and download simultaneously.
    It doesn't expose such API?
