How can I embed VLC on my VC++ application? Is there an ActiveX?

I need to include VLC video ActiveX in my VC++ application. How do I do that? I find this is better than WindowsMediaPLayer.

But, this talk about HTML and Delphi. Is there any way to get it done through VC6++?

The readme (2nd link) addresses this issue:


  14 This type library is usually generated from an IDL file using Microsoft MIDL compiler.
 
  15 Therefore, for convenience I have checked in the output of the MIDL compiler in the
 
  16 repository so that you will only need the MIDL compiler if you change axvlc.idl.
 
  17 the generated files are as follow:
 
  18 
 
  19 axvlc_idl.c
 
  20 axvlc_idl.h
 
  21 axvlc.tlb

Hm, that will depend on which ersion of VC++ you are using - there is some menu item that is called "Add object from Type Library" where you would point the IDE to the .tlb file.

Sorry for the delay, the notifications have apparently gone awry. In VC6, go to "Project|Add to Project|Components and Controls", then navigate to the VLC control and double-click it. The IDE should then generate the necessary headers and source files.
