How do I include a video player which uses a proprietary format in an aspx page?
Posted on 2009-12-29
I am writing a web application which manages the scheduling and operation of some video encoder/decoders. The decoded stream is in a proprietary format so I have to use unmanaged dlls to point the stream to the handle of a .net picturebox to get the video to play. I have written a Windows Forms app and a similar Forms UserControl that plays the video as well as interacts with some controls like play, pause, fast forward etc... I have also tried to embed the user control into an aspx page using the <object tag with the classid= the assemblydll#namespace.class but I can not get it to work, plus I have a dependency dll which I have read makes that method not work.
Any suggestions? I don't think I can use silverlight or flash as they will not allow a proprietary video fromat..
