Platform

Purpose

To show a video.

Syntax

SUBROUTINE SHOW_MOVIE@(FILE,OPT)
INTEGER OPT

Description

SHOW_MOVIE@ opens the given .AVI file and shows it in a window. If OPT is zero, the user must click the play button to start the movie. If OPT is 1, the movie starts immediately. Do not call this routine with a file which does not exist - if necessary check in advance.

When SHOW_MOVIE@ returns, the movie window will be displayed and will be under the user's control. The MOVIE_PLAYING@ function can be used to determine when the user finally closes the window. If a second call to SHOW_MOVIE@ is made before a previous movie has finished playing, Clearwin+ will wait until the first movie completes.

Movie files can include a sound track, which will be played if a sound card us installed in your PC.
