Can anyone help or tell me what control should i use

I appreciate your help!

Re: Visual Basic General multimedia in visual studio exp


When you install DirectX 9 there are some references that you can use for

multimedia such as 3D modeling, Playing Sound or long music.

also you can Play video in window mode or fullscreen.

here :

Add Reference (from Project menu): Microsoft.DirectX.AudioVideoPlayBack

Note: it beter for you : read something about "MD" in msDeveloper Network.

**It beter and faster than WMP reference.

Imports Microsoft.DirectX.AudioVideoPlayback

Public Class Player

Dim Video As Video

' Load File

Sub LoadFile(ByVal FileName As String)


Video= New Microsoft.DirectX.AudioVideoPlayback.Video(FileName)

Catch ex As Exception


End Try

End Sub

'Play it

Sub PlayFile()

If Not CheckDevice() Then Return


End Sub

Function CheckDevice() As Boolean

If IsNothing(Videoo) Then

Throw New NullReferenceException("Audio device is null.")

End If

End Function

Sub StopPlaying()

If Not CheckDevice() Then Return


End Sub

End Class

it so fun.
