Is there any way to open and run a .MPG or AVI file using labview ?
The problem is that i need to run a video file for the user so they know what to look for while testing. I have found the "open file" but this does not "run" the movie file.
Hope one of you can help
some solutions you may choose:
using the Windows media player: http://decibel.ni.com/content/docs/DOC-2207
using the VLC player: http://forums.ni.com/t5/LabVIEW/Embedding-Windows-media-play-in-LabVIEW/m-p/1068703#M473716
using the quicktime player: http://forums.ni.com/t5/LabVIEW/Pragmatically-using-Quicktime-ActiveX/m-p/1186347#M513367
Thank you for that.
But I would prefer a more simple approach where the Labview program simply "opens" the file, if possible ??
to play the video the software needs decoder. This is why LabVIEW cannot "open" the video.
