Pls help with embedding wmp in a non-dialog mfc view


I'd like to add mpeg, avi, and wmv playback capability to my mfc app.  I
thought that this would be quite simple if I decide to use Windows Media
Player ActiveX instead of DirectShow filtergraph.  Unfortunately that did
not happen (i.e. the 'simple' part).  First I struggled with Visual Studio
..NET - inserting wmp into the project did not generate CWnd derived wrapper
class (as stated in sdk docs).  Instead it generated COleDispatchDriver
derived class.  I did not want to waste any time on typing (clsid, create,
etc.) so I decided to use VC6 and generated CWnd derived wrapper classes.
Does anyone know why VS .NET does not generate CWnd derived class for wmp?

But my biggest problem is that the player control occasionally hangs the
application.  When this happens the CPU usage stays at 100%.  I think that
the problem occurs mostly at the time when the player switches between
different file types (e.g. from mpg to wmv).

My application does not play media files continuously.  It is event driven
and might play few clips in a row and then no clips for few minutes.  When a
given clip is being played the app does not 'know' if another clip will
follow immediately or not.

All examples that I've seen so far for WMP and mfc were based on the player
control embedded in a dialog box.

Could anyone please give me an example of a working code or point me to a
proper documentation?

The code I use to control the player looks something like this:

// Setup/creation
m_wmpPlayer.Create(NULL, WS_VISIBLE, CRect(0, 0, 0, 0), m_pParentWnd,
CWMPSettings wmpSettings = m_wmpPlayer.GetSettings();
wmpSettings.setMode(L"showFrame", TRUE);


// Playback start
m_wmpPlayer.MoveWindow(rRect, FALSE);


// Playback stop
m_wmpPlayer.DestroyWindow(); // will call site's DestroyControl()

CString and embedded 0s
Meh... I'm in the process of porting code from VS2003 to VS2008 and I found an issue with CString and embedded 0s. In MFC 9 (VS 2008), void Append( const CSimpleStringT& strSrc ), and consequently operator+=()const CSimpleStringT& strSrc), do not work as they used to in MFC 7.1. For example, the following does works with MFC 7.1 and not in MFC 9: CString s(_T("a")); s += CString(_T("b\000c"), 3); ASSERT(s.GetLength() == 4); // ASSERT here I traced it down to CSimpleStringT::Append(PCXSTR pszSrc, int nLength) (atlsimpstr.h, line 400 in MFC9 souurces, ...

Help! I've inherited a messed up plan :

Help with my upgrade path.
We have to accomplish two things. 1. Moving the CRM server to a new machine 2. Upgrading our system to 1.2 What is the best order for this? Jake, I'm not sure it really matters which one you do first, as long as you test each step before moving on to the next. I would probably recommend installing the other server first though. That way, you will have the v1.0 server available if you run into problems with the upgrade. (Granted, it won't funciton if the DB was already upgraded, but will be there for reference).

Creating Dialog Pointer with new, causes Exception
Hello all, I've written an MFC app, which has a tabbed interface. When it starts up, it checks my registry key, to determine how many tabs it needs, it then creates each tab, and puts a custom non modal, child dialog on each tab. The problem is, in release mode, it can only create the first dialog, the second one causes a memory exception. It *looks* like MFC doesnt like me trying to initialize a pointer like so, when that pointer is NULL. m_pDialogs[i] = new CMyDialog; Thing is, isn't that the whole point of the new operator? And malloc for that matter? The only difference, th...
