Solution Explorer folder for movie clips?

    Question

  • Hello

    I have several short movie clips on my desktop that I intend to use in a vb.net project.

    Can I ask, please, which folder in Solution Explorer do I store those videos in? Would it be images or do I create another folder called Movies?

    I am using VS 2013 Express for Web but I am downloading VS Community 2017 at the moment.

    Thank you.

  • Hi bluenose_ted,

    To use a video files in your code, you could store them in Resources folder, as VS has designed for it.

    Project->Properties. Then select the "Resources" tab. Next Select "Add Resource"->"From Existing File":

    After, you could see the video file in the solution explorer like this:

  • Hello Fletch

    Thank you for your reply.

    In VS 2017 and following your advice, I can see this:

    I can see Add Resource but not From Existing File.

    Thanks again.

  • That's done it, Fletch, thank you.

    That Resources folder is in the Windows folder not in the system32 folder (on my PC, anyway).

    I will bookmark this page because I will be adding more files in the future.

    Thanks again for your patience.
