is the PowerBASIC translation of my C# zMoviePlayer.
This version uses the DirectX ActiveMovie.inc
from José Roca
Note: You must download and install the CCCP codec attached to this post before running MovieBox (and un-install first any other codecs before installing the CCCP codec) MovieBox playing a 1920 x 800 MKV HD movie in composited mode on Windows 7:
To play a movie, just use drag & drop from the Explorer onto the MovieBox, or click on the play button to open the file dialog selector.
MovieBox adjust its size to the real size of the video being played, however you can drag the borders to resize the window as you want.
If you encounter a problem while playing a movie, most of the time this is because you are not using the good codec.
There are plainty of Codec packages on the Internet, thus you should be able to find the right one on a dedicated web site.See below the attached MovieBox2.zip
