ActiveMovie

An earlier video programming interface (API) from Microsoft for Windows 95/98 and NT that provided playback of MPEG, AVI and QuickTime video as well as WAV audio. It could decode MPEG movies in software and display them full screen at 24 fps on a 90 MHz Pentium. ActiveMovie was superseded by DirectShow (see DirectX).
