_GUICtrlAVI_Create Help Please

Recommended Posts

crashnburn

I am having trouble getting _GUICtrlAVI_Create to play my avi file. I receive this error message "video1.avi is either not designed to run on Windows or it contains an error". When I run it outside of AutoIT it plays fine, but to cover all my basis I have downloaded many codec packs but none seem to fix my issue. Is there something else that needs to be done in order to get this to work?

I assume you're trying to play an actual video since you're talking about codecs and stuff? The AVI control is for simple animations, like the flying file animation in the copy dialog of older Windows. See the GUICtrlCreateAvi() or _GUICtrlAVI_Create() examples.

If you want something heftier, I recommend looking at either of the two DirectShow UDFs.
