Hi friends!
When I try to play some .avi files using vb animation control, an error message like " unable to open avi file " appears.The same file is opened and played by windows media player. Also some other .avi files are played using the same animation control without any trouble.What's wrong with those avi files(or with my animation
 control)?

>>unable to open avi file
Check your avi file path, since the error comes where the avi file is not found.

You may post your codes here too.

dear ryancys,
when the path of the avi file is wrong, the error message will be 'file not found'.But I got the message as 'unable to open avi file.' I checked the path also & found it correct.
my code:

Private Sub Command1_Click()
   With Animation1
      .AutoPlay = True
      .Open ("d:\program files\microsoft visual studio\common\graphics\videos\fox.avi")
   End With
End Sub

I cant found then animation control you mean, however, you can try use the Windows Media Player Control:

Example:

Private Sub Command1_Click()
    With MediaPlayer1
        .AutoStart = True
        .FileName = "d:\program files\microsoft visual studio\common\graphics\videos\fox.avi"
        .Play
    End With
End Sub

Hope this helps

You need to import the Windows Media Player control from Component, have you done that before running the script?
