How to play a video file in VB but with different extension

Posted on 2006-05-13
Last Modified: 2010-05-01
I made some home-capture videos in AVI or WMV files
for tutorials which they play fine with media player or
the media player control in my visual basic project.
How can I put them in a Visual Basic 6.0
project to play but NOT with the normal extension
(for NOT exampla lesson1.avi  or lesson2.wmv) but I would
like something else for example lesson1.BBB or another
extension I dont know that they will play ONLY WITHIN MY PROJECT
(to protect my videos from copying only them and not using my
application for my students).

Thanks a lot for your time.
