Hello,

I am working in access and am trying to determine if there is a way to have the windows media player control start a video at a specific point as well as stop at a specific point either determined via code of within a field on the form.  

I have the player working running the video but am hoping to have it run from a time to a time and stop.

is this possible?

What code are you using now?

If the time ranges are predefined, for example:
Chapter1=1:17-3:34
Chapter2=4:07-5:11
Chapter3=5:15-6.59

...Then it may be easier to just use a video editing program to make separate files for each chapter...

Hello,
I am using VBA in Access.  Right now I have a button to watch the video which opens a form.  The on open event plays a video clip as defined the field text44.  At this time I am splitting the files in a video editor but as this takes a great deal of time I thought maybe there was a way to simply record the time ranges for each record and not have to edit a file 15-20 times.

Following is my current code:
Private Sub Form_Open(Cancel As Integer)

Set player = Me.WindowsMediaPlayer6.Object
player.settings.autoStart = True
player.URL = Me.Text4

    With Me
        .WindowsMediaPlayer6.Height = .InsideHeight
        .WindowsMediaPlayer6.Width = .InsideWidth
    End With
   
End Sub

Great!

Can you post the code for let's say, ...2 "Chapters"

This would be a great help for other members searching here for the same issue...
;-)

BTW, ...I believe you can actually accept your own post as the solution here...
Congratulations on getting this going!
