    It is impossible to answer your question. Projects containing videos work perfectly for me on both XP and Win7.

    What video formats have you tried - you say "any" but is that really what you mean, no matter if it's mpg, wmv etc. etc.

    Try posting an example of the .apz that doesn't work for you (without the video).

    i even tried with a simple script
    Code:
    result = Dialog.FileBrowse(true, "Locate File", _DesktopFolder, "All Files (*.*)|*.*|", "", "dat", false, false);
    Video.Load("Video1", result[1], true, false);
    and the same result
    the videos i tried are mostly .avi with some .mp4 .mkv(with proper codecs installed)
    nothing works(some worked with windows media player), they all work in windows xp.

    sorry for double posting i could not find the edit button.
    Code:
    vidlen = Video.GetLength("Video1");
    works on all videos i tried, i get the correct Length of the videos, but they still freeze and doesn't play.

    I have to stick with reliable standards to ensure compatibility with any (recent) Windows machine so I use .wmv almost exclusively now. All I can say is that I have no problems with videos in Win7 by doing so (hope that's not tempting fate).
