LEAD Network Source Filter

The LEAD Network Source Filter receives stream data, sent by the LEAD Network Sink Filter, on a TCP/IP network. It serves as a file reader filter in a DirectShow filter graph.

The LEAD Network Source Filter is automatically used by the LEAD Multimedia toolkit when you set the file name with the following format: ltsf://IP:PORT, example: ltsf:// The filter connects to the address provided as a file name to a player object.

The LEAD Network Source filter supports the IFileSourceFilter interface. You can use the IFileSourceFilter interface to set the address on the network source filter without using the LEADTOOLS toolkit.

The LEAD Network Source Filter works in conjunction with LEAD Network Multiplexer, LEAD Network Sink Filter, and LEAD Network Demultiplexer to form a complete communication circle; Client-Server based.
