Subject: Help with MPEG in VBl, Please !
Question: Hi:
I saw your name in a VB forum, you explained about how to play MPEG in VB. I need to create a simple application that plays an MPEG movie, full screen, no controls visible, No user interaction. (if possible).
I know i gotta use the Windows Media Player control - MSDXM.OCX but Iīm not an expert and I donīt know what is the code for doing this.

Please, help me. What are the events, and code for this.

Thank you so much !!

Firstly, add the control to the form and set the Visible property to False, then add this code when you want to play the file:

MediaPlayer1.FileName = "C:\Music\File.mpg"
MediaPlayer1.DisplaySize = mpFullScreen

Also add this code:

Private Sub wmp_DisplayModeChange()
MediaPlayer1.FileName = ""
End Sub
