AVI File Problems in VB6

AVI File Problems in VB6

AVI File Problems in VB6

I created a program using multimedia player. On my computer it worked fine. I saved the AVI file as a Microsoft MPEG-4 Video Codec V2 file from my Logitech webcam.

However, after i installed the program on another computer, i got the following message in my picture box control:
Video not available, cannot find: 'vids:mp42' decompressor.

The interesting thing is that Windows Media player will play these AVI files with no problem. Why will it not play in my picturebox as it did on my computer?

Do i need to include this codec in my deployment package somehow?

Should i try using the Media Player control instead of the MMC? with the Media Player control will i still be able to play the AVI file from my picturebox on the form?

Thanks guys.!
