This "CHT Utility Application", HNDVIDEOEDUCATION.EXE, is designed to be CHT's official media player. It streams .MP4 versions of CHT Educational Videos from our CHT Video Server (also a Clarion application).
At the same time HNDVIDEOEDUCATION.EXE also serves as a model for developers wishing to build their own streaming video players.
The player is built on CHT Template HandyComMediaControl which uses the Windows Media Player COM object based in WMP.DLL.
The player is capable of playing off-line any videos which have been previously viewed to completion. On-line viewing of uncached videos begins quickly, once approximately 5 percent of the video has downloaded, and already-cached videos begin immediately since they are not downloaded again.
If you plan to adapt this application to act as a video player for your own videos, a useful, accompanying application called HNDBUILDVIDEOLIST.APP can build video index files on your CHT-based video server, of the type utilized by this application and by the HNDWindowsMediaPlayer class (HNDWMP.INC, HNDWMP,CLW, HNDWMP.TLB).
