BTW, I can't get the Chapters to work. Something they did to the WMP. I got chapters to work in MSDXM but, not in WMP. I'm guessing we'll have to use a third party code to get the chapters out of the IFO, or Media file itself and Drawchapters from it. Chapters are there but, not retrievable do to permission limitations is my guess.

Hello again, I eliminated the collections missing and it's working. I am really interested in using the mediaplayer with w7, and using sami files for subtitles, I really would appreciate any help in this topic. I've developed a complete application that works perfect in XP,
Thanks in advance

Hello, it seems there is no solution for creating a mediaplayer in wy, using SAMI files for subtitles, though I'd appreciate very much your help with any suggestions.
