      The Microsoft® Windows Media® Player 9 Series Software Development Kit (SDK) provides information and tools to customize Windows Media Player and to use the Windows Media Player ActiveX® control. This documentation also provides information about using Windows Media metafiles.

      Support for customizing Windows Media Player is provided by:
      • Windows Media Player skins. Skins allow you both to customize the Player user interface and to enhance its functionality by using XML.
      • Windows Media Player plug-ins. Windows Media Player includes support for plug-ins that create visualization effects, that perform digital signal processing (DSP) tasks, that add custom user interface elements to the full mode Player, and that render custom data streams in digital media files created using the Advanced Systems Format (ASF) file format.

      Embedding the Windows Media Player control is supported for a variety of technologies, including:
      • HTML in Web browsers. Internet Explorer and Netscape Navigator version 4.7x browsers are supported.
      • Programs created with the Microsoft Visual C++® development system.
      • Programs based on Microsoft Foundation Classes (MFC).
      • Programs created using the Microsoft .NET Framework, including programs written in the C# programming language.
      • Microsoft Office.
  • Supported Operating System

    Windows 2000, Windows XP
