A simple MP3/AVI player using the VFW32 library

Introduction

I made a little sample program that enables you to play MP3 files without needing the AUDIOX library. I used the Windows Library VFW32.Lib

Just put the VFW32.lib in the Linker's space (Alt +F7) and add

#include "vfw.h"

to your principal file.

Once you've done this, you just need to use the MCI commands:

Steps :

  • Create a private variable HWND m_Video and BOOL Pause;

  • in the OnInitDialog set m_Video = NULL;

  • Put almost the Play button and add this source code on

Here are the functions I use in my dialog class to play/pause/resume and stop video playback.

m_Play is the 'Play' button control, m_Pause is the pause/resume button, Pause is a boolean value, and m_Video is a HWND.

void CAVIPlayerDlg::OnPlay() 
{
	m_Video = NULL;
	
	if(m_Video == NULL)
	{
		m_Video = MCIWndCreate(this->GetSafeHwnd(),
			AfxGetInstanceHandle(),
			WS_CHILD | WS_VISIBLE|MCIWNDF_NOMENU,m_Path);
		
	}
	else
	{
		MCIWndHome(m_Video);
	}
	
	MCIWndPlay(m_Video);
	Pause = FALSE;
	m_Play.EnableWindow(FALSE);
	
}

void CAVIPlayerDlg::OnPause() 
{
	if(Pause)
	{
		m_Pause.SetWindowText("Pause");
		MCIWndResume(m_Video);
		Pause = FALSE;
	}
	else
	{
		m_Pause.SetWindowText("Resume");
		MCIWndPause(m_Video);
		Pause = TRUE;
	}
}

void CAVIPlayerDlg::OnCancel() 
{
	if(m_Video !=NULL)
	{
		MCIWndDestroy(m_Video);
		OnOK();
	}
	CDialog::OnCancel();
}

void CAVIPlayerDlg::OnStop() 
{
	// TODO: Add your control notification handler code here
	MCIWndStop(m_Video);
	if(m_Video !=NULL)
	{
		MCIWndDestroy(m_Video);
	}
	m_Play.EnableWindow(TRUE);
}

I Suggest you to refer to the MCI Reference on the net at http://msdn.microsoft.com/library/psdk/multimed/mciwnd_3stv.htm

I also include an AVI player in this program. :-)

That's all for this !
