Generally speaking what plays in MediaPlayer will play through DirectShow.

Things to bear in mind with MPEG...

MPEG-1 - no problem (other than quality), the codec has been included as part of Windows for some time.

MPEG-2 - because of licencing, an MPEG-2 codec is not included as standard. If you want one, it will probably cost you - I haven't seen a free one. Premiere Pro installs one if you have that - as do several other applications - but you need to be careful assuming other people running your app will have one also. If your application's warrants it, you might need to licence one.

On the other hand - can you convert to Windows Media 9? It's free and the compression / quality ratio is better.

Good luck!
