Can you help me about inserting video in resources of visual basic and how to call it and play in my media player in a form..because i have media player in my project and my problem is how can i insert video and call it from resources...
I am going to assume that you mean adding a video to the embedded resources.
From the menu, goto Project->Properties. Then select the "Resources" tab. Next Select "Add Rersource"->"From Existing File". You can then select your video file. The file will be inserted with the File Name minus the extension as a binary array.
As far as I know, the media player control can only except a file reference to play. Therefore, you will need to write the binary array to a temporary file first.
Private TmpFiles As New List(Of String)
Private Sub Button1_Click(ByVal sender As System.Object, ByVal e As System.EventArgs) Handles Button1.Click
Dim fi As New IO.FileInfo(IO.Path.GetTempFileName())
Dim tmppath As String = IO.Path.GetTempFileName()
' The tmp file will have a ".tmp" extension
' The media player uses the extension to identify the proper codec to use to decode the file
' I used a wma video, so I will change the extension to that
tmppath = tmppath.Replace(".tmp", ".wma")
' Create the file and write the resource array to it
Dim tmp As IO.Stream = IO.File.Create(tmppath)
' Amanda is the name of my file
tmp.Write(My.Resources.Amanda, 0, My.Resources.Amanda.Length)
'Save a reference to tmp file so that you can delete it on the Form.Closing event
' tell the player to play the file
WMP1.currentMedia = WMP1.newMedia(tmppath)
Private Sub Form1_FormClosing(ByVal sender As Object, ByVal e As System.Windows.Forms.FormClosingEventArgs) Handles Me.FormClosing
For Each file As String In TmpFiles
Catch ex As Exception
Hi TnTinMN Your code works fine but when I go to debug I get this message. 'Error 1 Unable to write to output file 'C:\Users\Bill\documents\visual studio 2010\Projects\resources test 2\resources test 2\obj\x86\Debug\resources test 2.exe': System Error &H8007000e& resources test 2' My project name is resources test 2 I was wondering if this error is generated because of the total file sizes being around half a gig and or the amount of files I have added to the resources which would total around 35. Any idea would be helpful, thanks.
