Generic Stream Writer box can be used to store data in the format read by this box

This box is able to read any file saved with the Generic stream writer box. It is interesting to notice that such file can contain a variable number of streams. Therefore, the user is able to add and modify any output he wants on the box. The box does not supposes anything on the streams contained in the file during authoring in the designer. The streams of the file are mapped to created output at runtime in an "intelligent way" depending on there types.


This box can have as many output you want depending on the content of the file.

1. Output Signal

This is the default output.

  • Type identifier : Signal (0x5ba36127, 0x195feae1)

2. Output Stimulations

  • Type identifier : Stimulations (0x6f752dd0, 0x082a321e)


1. Filename

This setting points to the file to read. This file may contain a variable number of multiplexed streams. Those streams will be mapped to corresponding outputs at runtime. The mapping is done in an "intelligent way" because it reorders the streams contained in the file to match the types of the outputs. If a stream from the file does not find a matching output, a warning is launched. If an output does not find a matching stream from the file, a warning is also launched.

  • Type identifier : Filename (0x330306dd, 0x74a95f98)
  • Default value : [ ]
