Facing trouble while playing a video file using ActiveX COM component RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi,

    We are working on a silverlight application where we are playing the .WAV file using ActiveX COM component. To load the video file dynamically we are opening a HTML window by using window.open() method by passing a URL with relative path and on that HTML loading the ActiveX component to play the video file.

    Which is wrking fine in windowsX machine, where as it is not working in Windows 7 OS. Do any one have any idea why it is not playing in windows 7 OS.

    Please suggest.....

    I think maybe it is not support. you can ask the ActiveX COM component company.

    And you can play video in silverlight in the below way:
