Is it possible to load a video in from file. Not thru the content pipline.

To say i normally load from the content pipeline which is fine for like a intro video or such. = content.Load

However lets say i want to allow the user to select a video from file in any folder on his drive to load it and play it. I wouldn’t want to have to build the file after the game is already installed or running.

Something like.

var s = GetUserSelectedFullFilePath(); = Video.FromFile(s);

I don’t see anyway to do it directly but id like to have that functionality is there a way to do this ?.

No existing functionality, but I do not see why we couldn’t add a Video.FromUri(string, Uri) static method similar to Song.FromUri(string, Uri).

Did this ever come to pass?
