    Its pretty easy to implement an avi control. Follow these steps to add an avi animation control (CAnimateCtrl) to your dialog resource:

    • In the resource editor, click on the animate control icon, and place one on your dialog.
    • Go into 'Class Wizard' and add a control name to your newly inserted component. example:
      CAnimateCtrl m_avi;this is placed in your .h file.
    • Next, import the .avi file into your project. To do this, highlite your resource project name, and right click in the resource view window. Select import. Set the filter to *.avi, and select the avi file you want to import.
    • Enter "AVI" for resource type in the custom resource type dialog box.
    • Add the following code to your project:
      // CAvidemoDlg message handlers
      BOOL CAvidemoDlg::OnInitDialog()
      	// TODO: Add extra initialization here
      	m_avi.Open( IDR_AVI ); // open the avi resource.
      	m_avi.Play( 0, -1,-1 );play avi resource.
      	// return TRUE unless you set the focus to a control
      	return TRUE;

    I changed your code form:
    m_avi.Play( 0, -1, -1 );
    m_avi.Play( 0, -1, 1 );
    so that it would only repeat once, but how do i make the avi dissappear(sp?) after it has finished?
