Stop media player window from resizing

P: n/a
OK, this should be really simple, but I still can't see where I can set an
option to prevent Windows Media Player 9 from resizing the window when it
loads at startup or when a file is played. I need it to stay one size not
change depending on the videos size.

Any ideas?

Thanks

not that this has anything in the least to do with VB, how about the "View>VideoSize>Fit Player To
Video On Start" option?

I was referring to the Windows Media Player 9 SDK, I have added it into
a VB.NET application, but everytime I play a file it resizes itself and
covers up objects on the form, I want to prevent this from happening.

Darren,

I believe Media Player options can be set programmatically, so you might
want to explore the Media Player SDK docs on how to turn off the option Rick
has referenced.
