WMP playing mpeg from url without correct extension RRS feed

  • Question

  • Can anyone help me with this problem:

    I am using WMP embedded within a .Net application.

    I want to use WMP to view an mpeg video stream coming from a legacy device. Unfortunately, the url that the device uses to serve the video data has a '.cgi' extension - so WMP does not play it.

    Is there any way to overcome this - and to force WMP to play a stream of video data as mpeg data - regardless of whether the source url has the correct file extension ?
