MediaPlayer Filename

How to set the Filename for a AVI-File for the Mediaplayer on Runtime?

I tried to set the name this way:

  sPfad:=ExtractFilePath(ParamStr(0));
  MediaPlayer1.FileName:=sPfad+'\bin\animauts.avi';

Why does the error EMCIDevice Error occurs? Where to place the Code in my Program,.... ??

Thanx Choli

Do not use sPfad + '\bin\animauts.avi'; .. It won't work...

Use StrCat instead..

StrCat appends a copy of Source to the end of Dest and returns the concatenated string.

Unit

SysUtils

Category

string handling routines (null-terminated)

function StrCat(Dest, Source: PChar): PChar;

Description

StrCat does not perform any length checking. The destination buffer must have room for at least StrLen(Dest)+StrLen(Source)+1 characters.
To check length, use the StrLCat function.

Problem was not the string-operation. Problem was the media-player component. My String operation is ok.
Found the solution by myself.
