I am writing a game using visual basic 5 SP3 on an XP Pro SP2 system that is using avi video (with sound) for different actions. I am using the Microsoft Multimedia Control to play the AVI files. All works well and the files play when they are supposed to but I cannot get the control to center the AVI. No matter what I set width, height, left and top to... the AVI plays in the upper left of the screen. I am using a 640 x 480 AVI on a screen that is 1440 x 900. Twips per pixel is 15. I have used formulas to calculate center screen on all my other forms and they all center nicely... just the MM Control will not. I have tried placing my centering code before and after each step of the command codes to play the avi and nothing changes. Any ideas?
