i am trying to play an avi file.
I manage to start mci and play the file.
However, i want Mci to close down automatically when it has finished playing the file.
I done the following
if (m_videoWnd == NULL)
      {
            m_videoWnd = MCIWndCreate(this->GetSafeHwnd(),
            AfxGetInstanceHandle(),
            WS_CAPTION | WS_VISIBLE | MCIWNDF_SHOWPOS | MCIWNDF_SHOWNAME|MCIWNDF_NOTIFYMODE,
            filename);
            MCIWndPlay(m_videoWnd);
      }

Thanks in advance

You have used the correct options  of creating the MCIWnd by using MCIWNDF_NOTIFYMODE as on of your options.
By using this option you will recieve a notification message

MCIWNDM_NOTIFYMODE
wParam = (WPARAM) (HWND) hwnd;
lParam = (LPARAM) (LONG) mode;

you should handle the notification message . Try this with your window message handler

case MCIWNDM_NOTIFYMODE:
    if (lParam == MCI_MODE_STOP){        // device stopped
        MessageBox(hwnd,"","Closing Device",MB_OK);
        MCIWndClose(g_hwndMCIWnd);
    }
    break;

if you are using mfc treat the notification message as a user message and add your own handler without the help of classwizard
like this
declare the message handler in your .h file

afx_msg LRESULT OnMciWndNotification(WPARAM wParam, LPARAM lParam);

add this to your message map code

BEGIN_MESSAGE_MAP(CMyWnd, CMyParentWndClass)
    ON_MESSAGE(MCIWNDM_NOTIFYMODE,OnMciWndNotification )
END_MESSAGE_MAP()


hanlde the function in your .cpp file like any other handler.

I hope this information will be helpful to you . in case you need more information , please read  MFC Message Maps  from the VC++ books online or MSDN.
