Hi all

Somewhere i read that you can invoke the built in mediaplayer from your PPC
application, and play a videofile. Once the video is finished, you can stop
the mediaplayer, and bring your own application back to front.

Can anyone help me on this matter, with an example on how to do this ?

Regards
Anders

Your best bet is to use the SDK documentation and samples. This got
delinked from MS site but it's still available at least for now :
Check out http://www.pocketpcdn.com/libraries/wmp.html and grab fmor
the download link.

Sorry I can't help you with embedding in a C++/VB app, I only really
do web stuff ;-)

Cheers - Neil

I found out myself, here is the code

OpenNETCF.Diagnostics.Process p =
OpenNETCF.Diagnostics.Process.Start("\\Program Files\\Windows Media
Player\\Welcome To Windows Media.wma");

System.Threading.Thread.Sleep(9000);

p.Kill();
