    .avi files

    I'm working on a project for computer science (due soon) and I would like to be able to play a nice intro in it. I know a little flash, and I just learned that I can make a flash movie into a .avi file. Is there any way to play this in a full screen .exe file using DX, Allegro, OpenGL, etc..? I had the idea of loading and displaying sseperate bitmaps but I'd rather not. I'd prefer this to be done in C++, but other languages such as VB will do. Thanks in advance.

    How about using the 'full screen' FS command in the 1st frame, make it a projector that is loaded by your program when it is executed and put a 'quit' FS command in the last frame ...?

    Probably because I have no freakin clue how the hell to do that. My knowledge in Flash ends at tweening.

    Oh, and, why would you use an avi rather than an swf?? It you blow up an avi to full screen, it will be choppy as!

    the choppiness depends on the avi, the computer, and the video card.
