Screen size on media component

Is there a way to change the screen size when using the Tmedia component (I use D3)?  For example, when I click the "play" button, and an avi file plays, it always defaults to
a "default" size.  I would like to center it and adjust the size larger or smaller. Is there a way with this component?
                  Thanks

Hi jexd99,
still working on your screensaver?
Use the DisplayRect property to change the size of the AVI file output window. You can use DisplayRect to cause your AVI file's output to stretch or shrink to a certain size. e.g. You want that the AVI file take's up the whole area of Panel1 :
Mediaplayer1.DisplayRect := Rect(0,0,Panel1.Width, Panel1.Height);

So when the user presses a button :

procedure Form1.Button1Click(Sender:TObject);
begin
 if OpenDialog1.Execute then begin
   MediaPlayer1.FileName := OpenDialog1.FileName;
   MediaPlayer1.Open;
   MediaPlayer1.DisplayRect := Rect(0, 0, Panel1.Width, Panel1.Height);
 end;
end;

Have fun watchin the movie!

Hi jexd99,
forgot to tell you something:
Change the MediaPlayer1.Display property to panel1. (Put a Panel1 and MediaPlayer1 on a form). You can choose panel1 for display after you've put the panel1 on the form.
Have fun!

Thanks Zif!
I actually got the previous screensaver done and working, but
it took me alot longer than I planned! :)  I am trying to experiment with the media player because I haven't messed around with it much yet. I was looking at the display property with a panel trying to get it to work, but the key is the "displayrect".
I was soooooooo close! :)
