Hi everyone, here we got an odd requirement.
They want to be able to play a wmv in a handheld in the same form that doesn't support .NET, so I believe they're using Embedded Visual Basic.
Someone gave the Idea to use a dll with a control that contained the embedded wmp to play the wmv, the question is what's the best approach and how to do it? I downloaded a Microsoft example(c++) to access WMP in a mobile device using atl libraries and wmp.h but I kept getting some error about the threading and found out it had to do with the mobile sdk version and that stuff.
If someone could share an idea or a good example on how to go about it, I'd be very grateful, I'm a C# developer and have little to no experience in c++ or ATL/ActiveXControls. Is this the right approach or what are some suggestions?
I read a bit about how to create an ATL control but I didn't get a clear idea about how I'd do it to embed the wmp and the video there to display it in the Embedded VB in the handheld. The example I ran into just handled basic click events on the control but I don't know if you can embed the wmp there and how if possible.
Thanks to everyone, regards
