Play .AVI file

A while back I needed an easy way to play a .wav file under program control and was given a great solution.  I simply declared:

Declare Function sndPlaySound Lib "winmm.dll" Alias "sndPlaySoundA" (ByVal lpszSoundName As String, ByVal uFlags As Long) As Long

...and then placed the file path for the .wav anywhere it was needed.  My question:  Does the same kind of solution exist for playing .avi files?  Please let me know.  Thank you,

Warren Shore
