I think you can because when you develop a gauge in C or C++, you have access to all the Windows API. I don't know the multimedia API at all, but I'm sure it can be done in a gauge.Eric

Could also be done using windows media player through the Kneeboard as the kneeboard reads HTML.Regards,Roman(KGRB)

Nod... I was contimplating making a gauge (ha! I typed it right) that would play a DVD in the panel or kneeboard for those long flights. I figure xml should have the ability to control multimedia devices, so there must be a way. 'Tis on the to do list. :)CheersShad
