Currently i'm developing a video album using Visual C++ .NET form. A user can create a new album and add any video files (i.e AVI) to the album, and view it in the form. So, i'm just wondering how can I play a video files in the form that I created. Any sample code would be great. Thanks in advance.

Well - this won't compile with your Windows Forms app - but if you take a look at the source (EasyPlayer.cpp) - you'll have at least some reference on how to use MCI.
There's also good article on how to port MFC controls to Windows Forms - again Code Project - http://www.codeproject.com/managedcpp/mfcandwindowsforms.asp

I also forgot to mention the other way around - just use media player as ActiveX control - right click on your toolbox, select add/remove items and in the COM tab find media player.The control is really easy to use.
