Hello Experts,

I want to read a Mp4 Header in order to know the video length and frame width.
I'm looking for a simple solution without using any 3rd party libraries.
Is it possible to read it with a structure? something like:
Private structure Mp4Header
      dim Length as Integer
      Dim FrameWidth as double
      Dim FrameHeight as Double
      etc etc....
End Structure

...Read the Binary file using the structure....

Thanks in advance
