Resolution of remote WMV files

Post by eggz » Thu Jul 12, 2007 10:08 am

Hi. Just found getID3(), seems like a great class, good work.

I have searched the support forum for a while but couldn find enough information. I need to get the resolution of a remote WMV file to set the best width and height for my embedded mediaplayer.

In understand that I need to get a small part of the file and then analyze that. Would 32k be enough to get the resolution of a WMV file? Also, I need to write some code to fopen (i guess) the file and get it, and I'm not a very skilled php programmer.

If anyone has a sample code or could point me in the right direction I would be very thankfull.

32kB would probably be enough for WMV.

There are some other threads around here somewhere that contain sample code (this one for example) for you to copy from.
