    im trying to open a .mov file in binary which is easy enough to do...

    i haven't coded in a while... but i reread the book i had in school on the chapter on fstream....

    i am instantiating an fstream obj with ios::binary to open a .mov file... i can do this with a text file and it opens up aand reads... but i was never taught this... i read that you cant read binary files in text pad online... is that why...

    is this the reason its all weird looking..


    what i have to do is open a .mov into binary... then manipulate the 1's and 0's at first im just going to increment them all by 10 (binary - so 2) then send them back and see what it does to the video footage... im working on a gigantic project...

    okay i have been working on this alot.. and im going to bed

    thank you
