Re: Problem with CloseMovieFile [Solved]. Santhosh S Tue Dec 22 21:00:13 2009

Thanks George,

I just replaced fsCurPerm with fsRdPerm while opening the file, CloseMovieFile 
is closing the file descriptor and everything seems fine.

I am opening network mounted files, that may be the reason for not closing.
