Playing a short video?

Recommended Posts

Searching didn't help much but I'm guessing it's more of a GUI issue than anything:

I'm trying to compose a basic tutorial for people for when they run certain softwares (ie. Spybot, Adaware, etc).

I've already set if up with SplashImage and screenshots, looped with a "While WinExists"/Wend but I'm curious if this is possible. If I were to record the screen actions into an AVI or MPG, can a window be created to play and loop in a similar manner, while the other window exists?

While WinExists("Ad-Aware SE Personal")

SplashImageOn("Adaware","C:\Program Files\Lavasoft\Ad-Aware SE Personal\adaware1.gif",-1,-1,0,0,19)


SplashImageOn("Adaware","C:\Program Files\Lavasoft\Ad-Aware SE Personal\adaware2.gif",-1,-1,0,0,19)


SplashImageOn("Adaware","C:\Program Files\Lavasoft\Ad-Aware SE Personal\adaware3.gif",-1,-1,0,0,19)


SplashImageOn("Adaware","C:\Program Files\Lavasoft\Ad-Aware SE Personal\adaware4.gif",-1,-1,0,0,19)



Oh, anyone have an idea why the screenshots are bluish originally, but the SplashImages show up as a brownish tinge?

Don't argue with an idiot; people watching may not be able to tell the difference.
