Play a video file from a help menu vb.net

I have a vb.net app and what I would like to happen that I don't know how or if its possible is I have a Help Menu that when you click on that shows a sub menu that says "How To Submit a Service Request".

What I would like to happen is once that sub menu is click it should open up windows media player and play a video file I created located on one of my share drives (example: S:\videos\servicerequest. The file is called servicerequest.wmv.

How can I accomplish this?

Start a process with your filename:

            Dim myProcess As New System.diagnostics.Process
            myProcess.StartInfo.FileName = "S:\videos\servicerequest\servicerequest.wmv"
            myProcess.start()

This will work assuming the computer has an application associated with the file type of your file

process.start(filepath)
