You can use the Animation control.  Add Microsfot common controls 2 under the components.  Then draw the animation control exactly where you want it and when you want to play the file do:

animation1.open "c:\myfiles\myavi.avi"

and it will start playing it

argi,
If you are unsatisfied with flivauda's answer and want to use the MMControl, I can give you the code for playing the AVI file in any location inside your form.
Regards.
