Hi,

I am trying to create a simple media player in vb.net. For this I am using the Windows Media Player component. Playing an audio or video file works without problems. But I just can't get it to work to play a movie from the DVD drive. I tried a lot, and yes, I already searched on Google, but I can't find anything to get it working.
Is it even possible to do this? If yes, could someone help me out?

So you've surely found this link: Play dvd on vb.net form

What didn't work for you? Did you receive any errors? If so, what were those errors?
So I need a codec to play the dvd? I already have the K-Lite codec pack installed.
And to play the dvd I use this code

WMP.URL = "D:\VIDEO_TS\VIDEO_TS.Vob"

Then I get sound for a few seconds and a black screen. After a few seconds this sound stops and I still get no video.
