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

var
  TheStream : TResourceStream;

begin
  TheStream := TResourceStream.Create(Application.Handle, 'THEAVIRESNAME', RT_RCDATA);
  TheStream.SaveToFile('MyAvi.AVI)
  TheStream.Free

  MediaPlayer1.FileName := 'MyAvi.AVI';

etc...

Cheers,

Raymond.

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
