 I need to add an AVI to a resource file so that I can use the TAnimate.ResID/Name etc. properties, rather than the path name.
  Is there a freeware utility available that I can use, or can I do this using the tools provided with Delphi?

Create a Resource file, f.ex. MYAVI.RC and add a resource of type AVI. Then compile this into a resource file (.RES) using BRCC32 (in the Bin directory) and link it into your program using the {$R} directive.

The .RC file contains this line:
1 AVI MyFile.AVI

(the syntax is ResID, ResName and resource)

 Yeah, I see now. That seems to have done the trick, with a little bit of experimentation.

  Cheers for the help, Steven.
