Any help would be great.

Dim Aviheaderstart As Integer

AviFile = FreeFile()

CDL.Filter = "Avi files (*.avi) |*.avi|" & "All files (*.*) |*.*"
CDL.FilterIndex = 0


FileOpen(AviFile, CDL.FileName, OpenMode.Binary, OpenAccess.Read, OpenShare.LockWrite)

The CDL object is an object you have to insert into your form and set up there. Therefore, I will only translate the stuff around it and just take a filename.

At the top of the file, make sure to use the following namespaces:
    using System;
    using System.IO;

The rest of your code then is:
               int tempVHeight;
               int aviHeaderStart=33;
               using (BinaryReader aviFile=new BinaryReader(new FileStream(filename, FileMode.Open, FileAccess.Read, FileShare.Read))) {
                    aviFile.BaseStream.Seek(aviHeaderStart+36, SeekOrigin.Begin);
