I have a really broad question here ... need some feedback to point me in the right direction before i embark on this project. I want to use windows media player control in a fullsreen directx app. How would you guys go about it? I was thinking of making two windows, and running the wmp control on top of the directx app. Now, what if I were to use directshow? Would I be able to get the same functionality out of it? any direction would help .. thanks guys.

AFAIK Windows Media Player uses DirectShow internally for its decoding and rendering so you should be able to play anything WMP can play through DirectShow. If you need a play/stop/seek/etc. interface you'll need to code that yourself. I don't know how you would go about embedding the Media Player control in your application though.
