Hello experts,

I use XCard (it is good hardware decoder card from SigmaDegins - for playing video DVDs. I must make own program that remember start scene, subtitles, audio language and so on. So when end user put DVD - it start using already adjusted params.

I need of source code that shows how to control DVD playing. I mean total DVD playing solution, so I can easy change it to fit my needs. I can read description of MSWebDVD, but full source code will give to me more speed.  I prefer to use MS activeX control MSWebDVD. I use Visual Basic 6.0 with Service Pack 6 on Windows XP (with SP2).

    This will let you use all the functions you require and see how they were made. I tested it there works great. Still some errors in it though.

    Yes it seams that simple works.

    However for XP with SP1 or SP2 Microsoft recomend using MSVidWebDVD while use MSWebDVD. And unfortunaly support of XCard answer that XCard do NOT support MSWebDVD or MSVidWebDVD.
