Does wmp.ocx require wmp.dll?

Recommended Posts

Noobster24

Hi,

I use this code to create a wmp-object so that I can play music etc:

$pObj = ObjCreate('WMPlayer.OCX')

Well I made an installer for my program, some people don't have the wmp.ocx registred in the registry and/or they don't have the wmp.ocx at all. Now I need to know if wmp.dll is required by wmp.ocx to work properly.

I can't test this, because if I rename wmp.ocx or wmp.dll Windows automatically restores the files.

Hope that someone knows,

Andreas

Hallo Noobster24

Yes, most components is actually wrappers for some libraries and the 'WMPlayer.OCX' wmp.ocx is just a wrapper to wmp.dll that is the actuall component and a masive library with tons of functions and embedded libraries - 17 controls ( objects ) not all public but internal object used by Windows Media Player -> these represent about 50 properties like IWMPPlayer object that holds the strechToFit and fullscreen ec. properties and there's sometring like 50 subobjects of the same type - a masive component...

as you can see point directy to wmp.dll but also to wmploc.dll ( toolbox and bitmaps I think ), wmplayer.exe ( ? ) and there's propably more needed...

Alright, so I should install wmp.dll, wmp.ocx, wmploc.dll etc. to make it work for people who don't have windows media player installed? (Just for that stupid ActiveX object ;P)

Hallo Noobster24

Well yes, but why not use a webbrowser with the medieplayer embedded as this will use the stuff needed from the Inet and is more independed - there is an easy webbrowser library called cwebpage.dll. This browser is easy to use, do all the stuff as 'WMPlayer.OCX' can do ( and a lot more ) from a few functions - this library can do a lot of stuff...

; hybrid code example script by Kåre Johansson 2007
; CWebpage library as medie player embedded HTML code

#include "GUIConstants.au3"
$dll = DLLOpen("cwebpage.dll")

$hwnd = GUICreate("MediePlayer...",510,520,-1,-1)
$pos = WinGetClientSize($hwnd)

DLLCall($dll,"long","EmbedBrowserObject","hwnd",$hwnd)
GUISetState()

$a = '<BODY scroll=no>' & _
'<OBJECT classid="clsid:6BF52A52-394A-11d3-B153-00C04F79FAA6" ' & _
'ID=APlayer style="position:absolute;left:0;top:0;width:510;height:520">' &  _
'<param name=AutoStart value=1>' & _
'<param name=uiMode value=full>' & _
'<param name=URL value="C:\temp\test.mpg"></OBJECT><\body>'

DLLCall($dll,"long","DisplayHTMLStr","hwnd",$hwnd,"str",$a)
While 1
   $msg = GUIGetMsg()
   If $msg = -3 Then ExitLoop
WEnd
$ret = DLLCall($dll,"long","UnEmbedBrowserObject","hwnd",$hwnd)

Func OnAutoItExit()
   DLLClose($dll)
EndFunc
