Hi!

To load resources you must use the LoadLibrary function to create a handle to the dll. And then read the AVI file.

If you didn't understand just leave me a comment.

I understand, but what i need is the source code to load that resources in my TAnimate. like:
Animate1.ResID := 101; <--- this is from resources in .exe so when i got my handle to my DLL what I must do?

Can't you get it with LoadResource?

It seems to work but it takes the resource from it's own executable.

Try this (haven't tested it! Just a guess!) :

 DllHandle := LoadLibrary({name.dll});

And use this DllHandle with

 AviHandle := LoadResource(DllHandle, {....});

Have fun,
