Displaying AVI images

Feb 18, 2009 at 3:14 PM
Is there a better way of displaying the first or last frame of the AVI file in my progress dialog?

I currently have some nasty code that starts the AVI playing the then a pause which is hopefully long enough so something is displayed.

Perhaps there is a better (free) control to use. I'm currently using the MediaElement which requires Windows Media Player version 10 or 11.
