Please can someone tell me how XBMC handles movie files that are in a zip file.

I know it works but does XBMC extract the file and store it locally?
The reason why I ask as it takes a while to open the zip the first time but any subsequent openings on the same file happens instantly?

Can XBMC handle a password encrypted zip file?


Am I asking a daft question or does no one want to tell me?

you could have just read the code, it's all in there..

yes, if the file is larger than a threshold (50MB iirc), it's extracted to a temp file.
no handling of passworded archives.
