How can I embed a media player in my script?

5 posts in this topic

#1 ·  Posted (edited)

I have been looking at the WMP.udf's and I dont understand how to make a form window and add elements to it. I want to have 3 main elements in my script

1. main GUICreate form. Fills the screen and colors the background black while idling

2. A media player object

3. A GUI User input box

I want to have the video player playing a video file. I want the video to play at full screen but I need the script to be listening to the user input box. I figure if I have both the video player object and the user input box running at the same time I can continue to enter information in the user input box and send the data to the media player while it is playing another video.

I have looked here -> but I am having trouble getting the window I create to show a user input text window. Why isn't this adding a user input window and allowing me to enter data into it?
