Can WindowsMediaPlayer play more than one file at a time?


Using VB6

I would like build a VB6 program that can play more than one media file at the same time.

WindowsMediaPlayer1.URL Video1
WindoesMediaPlayer2.URL Video2

I can't get that to starts player1 and then starts player2 stopping player1
Is it even possible?
Is there another way or control to achieve it?

It's working & both playing video without any problem.

Private Sub Form_Load()
    MediaPlayer1.Open "file1.mpg"
    MediaPlayer2.Open "file1.mpg"
End Sub

I'm using Windows Media Player component. (msdxm.ocx)
