Hello guys,

In reference to the related question, I am using the same code which can be found on msdn web site to play video files using DirectShow, I can play WMV files without any problems, but if I try to play AVI files, I have 2 cases:

1) either the video is displayed without the audio, for instance when playing the clock.avi file found under Windows XP folder,

2) or the audio is present without the video which the case that happened when I created AVI file my self to test it.

I have to say that I am using a custom run time image, and I am including all the available catalogs for audio and video Codecs and renderers.

So, are there any specific requirements for the AVI file to be played on Windows Embedded, i.e, a specific type of audio and video formats the AVI file must be created with?

Thank you in advance and highly appreciate any help.

Can you elaborate a bit more here: AVI is an outdated carrier that really isn't a mainstream streaming format. Which video codec are you using in the AVI container?
WMV is of course the container for WMV9 or WMV8 etc. with wma audio.
So what codecs are you using in the AVI container and why do you want to stream in the AVI container?

Thank you fredshovel for replying.

As a matter of fact I was not trying to use AVI for streaming, I just wanted to play a simple AVI file that contains both video and audio, there was no specific reason why I wanted to use AVI but not another format, so I solved this problem by simply using WMV file and everything went fine.

Thank you.
