Open another window in visual studio

Trying to make a C++ code in visual studio 2019 that will open a video in another window, and create a new window, not play the video in the command thingy. A lot of the stuff I've got from this forum and online isn't working.

It sounds like you are try to run before you can walk.

Slow down and learn the basics.
I know the basics, Just trying to expand my knowledge. Plus, I need this for a personal project that I am working on.
Your problem is too underspecified.

You can use ffmpeg's libavcodec to decode many extant video formats

(This is not really a beginner's task)

Knowing the basics isn't just the C++ language, it's also knowing how to create a window and how to build and link 3rd party libraries to your project.
