Retrieves filepaths that are being read/open by other applications

3 posts in this topic

Hello guys and gals,

Actually, I need to be able to get the filename & path of currently playing media from Potplayer so I can do some file manipulations. Checking windows' titles or text from Potplayer's window, I can only get the filename without the path.

So, I was searching in the forum for a way to retrieves opened files from an application like FileMon but without luck. This would be very useful...in case I want to change media player, so I don't have to find ways to get the currently playing media again.

Has someone be able to do this?

Incase someone's currious...

Hi FireFox, thank you for the suggestion. Unfortunately, I believe, the FileSystemMonitor is used to monitor a folder from any changes.

In my case, I don't even know the folder. I would need a way to know what filenames and paths that are currently opened by a process.
