Open a video file using labview

Hi.

 

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

Thank you for that.

 

But I would prefer a more simple approach where the Labview program simply "opens" the file, if possible ??

Hi,

 

to play the video the software needs decoder. This is why LabVIEW cannot "open" the video.
