Window Media Player plays sound but no visuals

P: n/a
Hi, wondering if anyone can help me out here. I wrote a VB.NETapplication with Windows Media Player embedded into theapplication. The player is suppose to start automatically whenthe application loads. I tried it on my computer and everythingworks perfectly. However, when I did a setup wizard project andinstalled it on another computer, the app started, I can hearthe sound of the movie, but there are no visuals. Anyone knowthe reason why?

Thanks in advance.

This is simply because the other computer did not have the required codecs
for showing the video...The problem is not due to any programming error....

try opening a video file which plays perfectly on that pc from your app...
