Jtn - MosaicHUB may not be the best place for you. Please check MSDN from Microsoft which will surely have the answer. As I understand, you would need to include the Media Player Component, which is (if I am not second-guessing) is a Component. So you would need to register the component in your project and instantiate it in your programme and then configure its properties and events to play the video in your application. Sharad
