I wish to play a MIDI file from memory, not from a file.
If you know a way to do it in Delphi1 it'd be appriciated.

I wish to be able to play a MIDI file that is in a memory stream. I have a compo to add files into my final .EXE. I can use the files as streams in my program. The problem is that I can't play a MIDI if it isn't a physical disk file, unlike the
command SndPlaysound which can also get a memory block as input... am I clear enough?

Sorry for the long time.

If you need only play from memory then this is easy

var m : TMemoryStream;
  m := TMemoryStream.Create;
  m.LoadFromFile( 'D:\TEST.WAV' );
  sndPlaySound( m.Memory, SND_MEMORY );
