Hi, I&#039m trying to read the contents of a virtual file<BR>http://webserver/path/filename.ext in my own Active X component.<BR>I need to be able to read in the contents of this file and<BR>parse through it. The functionality I need is the same as<BR>the Windows Media player mediaplayer.open function.<BR>That function can open a file that is either a physical path or a virtual path. I&#039m developing this object with VB. Any help would be appreciated.
