Using an .avi file on a visual Basic Form

I am developing a VB Desktop application. What i want is that when the exe file is run, a form should run a .avi file. after the file has ended, the start up form (or the main form ) my project should be loaded. I have tried using Component (Microsoft Active Movie Control) but am unable to achieve the desired result. Thanks in advance to everybody who send a solution

I used the MMControl like this in a command button.

Private Sub cmdVideo7_Click()
Dim dbName As String
   
    dbName = App.Path & "\video7.avi"
    MMControl7.Visible = False
    MMControl7.Notify = False
    MMControl7.Wait = True
    MMControl7.Shareable = False
    MMControl7.DeviceType = "AVIVideo"
    MMControl7.FileName = App.Path & "\video7.avi"
    MMControl7.AutoEnable = True
    ' Open the MCI WaveAudio device.
    MMControl7.Command = "Open"
    MMControl7.Command = "Play"
End Sub

If you change some of the properties and put it under the form load I think it will play the avi file when the form loads.
