Assuming the MPlayer binary is an ActiveX control, you simply right-click in the Toolbox, select Choose Toolbox Items, and then dialog pops up, you click on COM Components.  If the MPlayer control is not listed, then select the Browse button and find the MPlayer DLL, add it.

Make sure to select this now in the list.  It should now show up as a control in the toolbox.

Yeah.  I don't have a good answer to that question.  I usually add them all and keep the ones that succeed.  

You could check to see which ones are COM dll's by running regsvr32 against each one and then noting the ones that succeed.  

Maybe you can view them with dumpbin.exe.  I don't know.  I just grab them one at a time and try them.

I tried all of them but none of them seems to be a active X dll and their is no ocx control i wonder if Mplayer does have that ability or not ? DO you have any idea about this ?

Sorry.  I don't think MPlayer is an ActiveX control.  I just tried this myself yesterday.

You might be able to create your own control using Platform Invoke.  that would be a task though.  Honestly, I'm not sure if I would know how to do that right off.  Basically, you'd use P/Invoke to run functions available via the MPlayer DLL's and such.
