    Hi,

    in the last weeks i've developed a directshow http streaming filter. With it it is possible to play every file you can play locally with a directshow player. The filter uses the http 1.1 protocol and the range header support of it to stream nearly all existing file types/formats through http. It is a replacement for the MS File Source URL filter but supports seeking.

    So it is for viewing streamed content NOT for serving them.

    I don't have the C++ directshow experiance you are looking for and my time is limited due to already maintaining OnlineVideos, but I can try to help!
    I've been waiting for a replacement of the pretty incapable "FileSource (Url)" filter from Microsoft, to get rid of some OnlineVideos playback issues.

    First i've to say that i have no time the next two days. So i'll reply everybody wanting to help on thursday or friday. But you can still write here or via pm - i will not forget anybody.

    > So what excactly would this new filter allow you to do and for which type of streams?
    Basically it allows any ds filter to read from the file like it were local - if the bandwidth is fast enough. I use it for example to to play .mkv files through http instead of using SAMBA which is a lot slower. So the filter looks like:
    my source filter => mkv splitter => audio / video

    So it is basically a replacement of the file URL source filter.

    > Would this also apply to flv streams (youtube)? One can dream, right?
    if there is a splitter and youtube allows content-range based reading - it will.
