I have on my Form a OpenDialog and a MediaPlayer.
I want the media player to playa WAV file choosen from the opendialog. Once I have the filename i do,
  Mediaplayer.filename := OpenDialog.filename;
then MediaPLayer.play, but this doesnt work....
It doesnt play any file....
If I Put a filename in MediaPLayer.filename before I compile the progam it will play that file even when I change the Mediaplayer.filename...
What is going on here?

Try closing and opening media player BEFORE assigning a file name. Such as

MediaPlayer1.Close;
MediaPlayer1.FileName := 'xxxxx';
MediaPlayer1.Open;
MediaPlayer1.Player;
