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.




string handling routines (null-terminated)

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


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.
