MCI AVI Player VDS 4.x/5.x

This is an example to show how to play AVI files using @MCI function built into VDS.
You can play any AVI file in the standard format but it wont work with compressed AVI files like DiVx. You can :
1.Play the files.
2.Pause and resume playing.
3.Resize the AVI to whatever size within limits of visibilty and quality of the file.

(Use lot many other functions i have not illustrated here like cue,seek etc.
Refer to Microsoft Multimedia SDK if U want.)

You can add the movie to a line element or others to give it a border/different look if u want.
Note that it somehow doesn't work with the bitmap dialog element.

To loop the movie in this example use the command :

%P = @MCI(seek AVIFILE to start)
%P = @MCI(Play AVIFILE)
in the timer loop as shown in the example.

Uses:
1.Play simple movie files.
2.Add animations to your program.
3.Animated spalsh screens.
4.Other thing U can imagine !!

I believe that since this option is available in VDS 4 few if not many people might have been using it. I am interested to know more things from them Very Happy
If U have any suggestions please let me know

So Enjoy !!!.

PLEASE NOTE THAT THE BELOW EXAMPLE NEEDS A CLOCK.AVI FILE IN THE APP DIRECTORY.
(Win2k/NT users can find this in their windows/WinNT directory).
You can download the dsc file and the avi from here !

Hi CodeScript,

Please don't take offense, but I think it would be good to sign up for an
author account at http://www.vdsworld.com/index.php?page=signup

I would rather download a ZIP file with your script and additional files
rather than decode these postings. Just would make it easier.

I really like your scripts and I hope you continue to develop them, but
I think it would be better to upload these to your author account.

An author account is completely free and is easy to use, and you can
upload your files directly to VDSWORLD, you don't need any webspace
somewhere else. Smile

FF thanx for the reply.
Even I was very much uncomfortable posting the file this way. It decreases visibilty and is also annoying . many people dont even understand what to do with it. Besides I fear that it may interfere with site search engine.

Additional Info:
You can play DiVx avi's too.
Install DiVx 4 codec that's all.
Brightness of the movie may not be satisfactory sometimes.
If so U can configure the codec from a third party video player U have or a configuration utility may be added to the AVI palyer itself if U want.
Enjoy your favorite movie on your VDS player Very HappyVery HappyVery Happy

Just an addition to FreezingFire's post. If you make complete code-packages and you upload it at VDSWORLD, you can always post a message on this forum about it. That way people who need it, know where to search... Wink
