I have a task to build an application that records the video stream sent from a server. Serialization of the recorded file is necessary. File can be in any format. Can someone suggest me how to go about it?

I'd start by answering jkchan's question about the format of the received data.

After that, I'd look for a tute that extracted single-frames from a video - using that as a means of finding the info required to perform the opposite action, that is - adding frames to a (at first empty) video.

in what format server sends the video stream ? is it transport stream or filestream ? if it is file stream you can just save to file right ?

i mean i have to save the data into a file....whatever data that was streamed till then(when user wants to stop recording) should be saved into a file(.avi or .wmv or whatever..)

i had used direct show to save streams.. in that you can have source filter which reads data from a server, and saves/plays it .. you have a look at directshow samples..

ok, thanks for the suggestion, i will look into some of the samples of direct show and will get back...
