You have to write it to a file then give it to the mediaplayer, like this:

  TheStream : TResourceStream;

  TheStream := TResourceStream.Create(Application.Handle, 'THEAVIRESNAME', RT_RCDATA);

  MediaPlayer1.FileName := 'MyAvi.AVI';

Actually I want to burn the program on Cd so I can´t create a file. And the program can´t fin the resource file - the resource is in ANIMATION and called Animation_1. Help

Well, you could write it to the windows temp directory. Alernatively, since you're burning a CD why not just put the AVI down as a separate file?

is there no way to start the file from the ram, instead of writing it to disk
