Play a Video File in a Access using WMP Control

 S  M  L  XL  FS  |  Slo  Reg  Fast  2x  |  Bookmark Join Now

In this Microsoft Access tutorial, I'm going to show you how to play a video or audio file inside your database using the Windows Media Player ActiveX control.

Laci from Zachary, Louisiana (a Platinum Member) asks: I know you can display pictures, but is there any way to play videos inside an Access database? We make demo videos for a lot of our products, and it would be nice and handy if we could list them along with our products and possibly view them there as well.


Members will learn how to create a playlist to select videos from, we'll learn how to resize the player in the form window, we'll learn how to launch the videos in whatever the installed (external) video player is on your system, and we'll see how to use the VLC Media Player ActiveX control which is much better than Windows Media Player.

Silver Members and up get access to view Extended Cut videos, when available. Gold Members can download the database template from class plus get access to the Code Vault.
