  (I believe) You are going to have to use the MultiMedia APIs for that.

Try using the MCI_WINDOW_CLASS in VFW.H. It provides a simple window which you can load an AVI and play it using messages.

It is not in the file mciwnd.h, it is in vfw.h.

I'm not aware of any ActiveX controls that play an AVI, I suppose there has to be one somewhere.

In VFW.h <mciwnd.h> is #included and that is not to be found anywhere. I tried the thing out and it gave a
Linker Error Unresolved External symbol _mciwndCreateA

You also need to link with VFW32.LIB. Add this to your link libraries.

Yahooooo and Celebrations . The Program did work after all...
I also found out the ActiveX control that plays the AVI. The MCIWNDx active X control is most appropriate for the same....
Thanks a lot for Your timely and valuable help....
