Hi,

Does anyone have any experience integrating quicktime into a vc++ .net project? I am able to add the quicktime COM+ but, form there, no idea. I would like to have exterior functions for loading a new movie, play, etc... Any ideas?

QuickTime 7 includes a new QuickTime COM/ActiveX control targeted at COM and .NET developers using Visual Basic .NET, C# and of course C++.
To add the QuickTime COM control to your VS.NET Toolbox:

* Right-click anywhere in the Toolbox and choose Add/Remove Items… to bring up the Customize Toolbox dialog.

* Choose the COM Components tab

* Check "Apple QuickTime Control 2.0" and click OK.


Once you have added an instance of the control to your Windows Forms form, you can load a movie by setting the URL property of the QuickTime control.

In VB.NET:

AxQTControl1.URL = ""

Once a movie is loaded, the Movie property of the control provides access to the QTMovie COM object which wraps the movie.

e.g.

AxQTControl1.Movie.Play()

Dim trackLength As Long = AxQTControl1.Movie.Tracks(1).Duration


You can use the Object Browser to explore the object model provided in the QTOControlLib and QTOLibrary namespaces
