Playing video on a PocketPC/Windows Mobile device

Hello,

I have to write an application that will play a video file on a Windows handheld device. This is the problem description:

1. the original video is an MPEG or DivX/XviD one, but it can be converted to any format you like before downloading to the device. If it requires conversion, please specify an address to download the conversion tool. The conversion tool should be free, but this is not required.

2. the program must run on a PocketPC 4.20.0 Build 14053 with Windows Media Player 9 device as well as an industrial computer with Windows Mobile 5.0. The PocketPC device has much higher priority right now.

3. Please give me a complete sample that will compile in eMbedded Visual C++ 4.2 or Visual Studio.NET 2005 using C++ and MFC. I've lost so much time trying to find a solution that I'm willing to pay for it. Programs that don't compile or run have low chance to be accepted as answer.

4. Sound is not required; however, if sound is present in the file, it must not prevent the program from playing the video.

5. The question is urgent

Thanks in advance for your replies

I tried the link and get the following error in eVC 4:

Linking...
CMediaBookmarker.obj : error LNK2019: unresolved external symbol "long __cdecl ATL::wce_ATL_CreateStreamOnHGlobal(void *,int,struct IStream * *)" (?wce_ATL_CreateStreamOnHGlobal@ATL@@YAJPAXHPAPAUIStream@@@Z) referenced in function "long __cdecl ATL:

emulatorDbg/MediaBookmarker.exe : fatal error LNK1120: 2 unresolved externals
Error executing link.exe.

Don't know why. I will try it in VS.NET 2005 yet.

Yes, I installed the PocketPC 2003 SDK for eVC 4 and Windows Mobile 5.0 SDK for VS.NET 2003. I installed it to the default path and applications using MFC compile normally. May be I forgot to set some path or I don't know. I tried to look up help for the functions missing in the eVC case to add the appropriate libraries manually, but there's no help for at least the first one. If you wish, I can send you the projects, but I'm new here and don't know how to attach files to this conversation.

Thanks, I found the answer to compile the sample in eVC 4 in the FAQs, but I still don't know how to in VS.ENT 2005. I uploaded the projects to http://www.bolekvrany.cz/demo.zip. Please take a look. Thanks
