When you watch a video in Windows Media Player, the video only plays for ten seconds, and then the player stops.
The PreviewMode property for the player is set to TRUE.
Set the PreviewMode property to FALSE.
You can set the PreviewMode property in the Windows Media Player ActiveX control if it's embedded in a Visual Basic program. You can also set the PreviewMode property on a Web page if the Windows Media Player is embedded in the Web page, for example:
<PARAM NAME="PreviewMode" VALUE="True">
When the PreviewMode property is set to true, the player plays ten seconds of each clip in a .asx playlist. If there is only one file in the playlist, that file only plays for ten seconds, and then the player stops. This feature is similar to radios or CD players that play a few seconds of each radio station in a preset list or a few seconds of each track on a CD.
