Only simple AVI animations can be played. Specifically, the animations played by this control must meet the following requirements:
· There must be exactly one video stream and it must have at least one frame.
· There can be at most two streams in the file (typically the other stream, if present, is an audio stream, although the control ignores audio information).
· No palette changes are allowed in the video stream.
At design time only the first frame of the AVI animation is displayed on the control; to see the AVI animation it is necessary to run the control.
When pictures or animations are set at design-time, you do not need to distribute the pictures or animations with your application. This is because they will be included in your program at compile-time. Redistribution of images is only necessary when the images on the button will be changing at run-time.
