CHT Personal Video Player [V10.17.07.0150]

Previous Page
This "CHT Utility Application" is designed to be used as a general use, private video player (variation 3). It streams .MP4 versions of MP4 videos from one of our CHT Video Servers. At the same time the application also serves as a model for developers wishing to build their own streaming video players.

By way of example, we will present a variety of science and music videos that reflect our interests. The chief advantage of using a private video player rather than running the standard Windows media player is that this one does not reveal the location of videos and can act as a private video player or even an in-home player hooked to a private in-home video server.

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).
