Retrieving Codec from MediaPlayer OCX

 Retrieving Codec from MediaPlayer OCX

Ok, please help i'm stuck with simple GUI I've created for movies. All I'm
trying to do is get the codec information from a DivX4 MP3 compressed AVI,
using the MediaPlayer OCX plugin. Using MSDN I found the command


which requires a value less than or equal to


Which is suppost to return a value greater than 0. No matter what I try - it
always returns zero - i.e. Mediaplayer isn't using any codecs.
Is there a better way to solve this problem, or a way for CodecCount to
return a value of more that zero. Using a forced value, eg
MediaPlayer.GetCodecInstalled(1) just produces an error.

I'm using the mediaplayer .OCX version

Any ideas greatly appreciated.
