What is the best way to show a video file directly in a
Form?

Can I use functions of Windows Player in a Windows Form?
Functions like: play video or show visualization for
music, etc.

Hi there,

I advise using DirectShow.NET, a free DirectShow wrapper for .NET, I
implemented it in my application and it supports all manor of videos now!
Apparently it's *experimental* but I haven't had any issues with my use
(touch wood).

^Doing a DirectShow implementation (in my opinion) is much nicer than
using Windows Media player. but you will have to work out the visualisation
bit on your own, I haven't got that deep yet :-( sorry!

Nick.

Thanks Nick!

I will try it.

I did find the:
Windows Media Player 10 Software Development Kit (SDK)
http://msdn.microsoft.com/library/default.asp?
url=/downloads/list/winmedia.asp

I downloaded it and they have a good example code with
visual Basic .Net do both video/audio and
visualizations. Had you seen that and tried it?

Bob

Nope I haven't tried Windows Media Player for a long time, since using
VB6, everyone went through a phase of using the player component to play
MP3's, so all of the MP3 players were identical. But that sounds cool,
especially if they have VB.NET examples with Player 10, I'll check it out!
Cheers.

Nick.
