Heres some quick VB Code.

Function GetMapName(Path As String) As String
Dim sBuffer As String
nFileNum = FreeFile
sBuffer = Space$(50)
Open Path For Binary Access _
Read Lock Read Write As #nFileNum
Get #nFileNum, 1, sBuffer
sBuffer = Mid(Left(sBuffer, InStr(sBuffer, vbNullChar)), 4)
GetMapName = sBuffer
Close #nFileNum
End Function

pretty sloppy, but it gets the job done. Just call it with the full demo path.

As I said in IRC, ask MichalM what compression is used on the demos and I will find a way to get the map name for you.
