I'm including vfw.h within my c++ program, but every time I try to use a command, I get an unresolved external when linking. Do you know what can cause this? Also, is it possible to play an avi file within a dialog?

You must link your project with vfw32.lib. To play AVI file in dialog you can use windows animate common control, if you are programming with MFC take advantage from CAnimateCtrl class which wraps this control. Only RLE encoded AVI files can be played by this control. If you want to play other AVI files use MS active Movie SDK or ActiveX control that you can insert into your dialog. The third way is to use MCI API.
