If you are using .Net from VB, C# or C++ you can access the DirectX media playing services, to launch a stand alone copy of Windows Media Player or embed it into your aplpication, visit the current DirectX/XNa website for information. http://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/directx/default.aspx

SlimDx

You may also want to take a look at the SlimDX wrapper, and its examples: http://slimdx.org/

DirectShow

Direct Show might very well be old school, but if you don't want to look into slimDX then you might want to use the last official Microsoft Managed wrappers for media, these you will find various information sources about.  Though none from microsoft:
