  • Help with AVI

    I have created a AVI file that I want to display on a dialog
    that is being created using DDT.

    The path and name of the AVI file is "\pbdll60\psasset\psasset.avi"
    The handle to the dialog is hpsassetForm1&

    Could someone give me the code to play this AVI.

    What do I put in the RC/PBR file?

    Thanks in advance.

    Phil;

    MCI commands are the way to go !

    You simply create a generic child window and then using MCI
    send a command to Windows to use that window for playing a video
    and windows should take care of the rest.

        note, if you want to use some avi, you need to use latest pbres.

          Another source of information. Even though its in VB,
          it's a good place to learn.

            Semen,

            Thanks for the link to your example code. I'm up against a deadline
            (trade show), so I don't know if I'll get much chance to play, but I
            will in May.
