    How to identify a window playing a video in a browser

    Hi
    I wish to understand how one can programmatically identify if a window is playing video content?
    I used spy++ to identify particular attributes for windows playing video but I did not find any particular attributes associated with window playing video.
    I have handles to all windows on screen and want to find which ones are playing video ? Could you please throw some light on how can one do this and are there any special properties associated with a window playing video?

    Video window is just a window frame images are blitted to. No special traits or properties required for that, as far as I know. Besides, there are lots of embeddable players except Windows native ones: flash, shockwave, VLC, DivX, HTML5 video, etc. Do you really think they are absolutely identically implemented inside?
    Best regards,

    Not what I'm aware of. Besides, window doesn't play anything. Process does.
