Maybe the one for Delphi 3 works on Delphi4...

FLI/FLC is very old.

There are some components for D4 at http://www.torry.ru/mmedia2.htm but none is for free.

You should be able to play cinepack avi's with the build-in mediaplayer component (system tab).

Can You explain please what you mean with build-in mediaplayer componnent and cinepack

I found some winNt and windows95/95 which have no installed cinepack codec on system
Are You saying that in this cases will be possible to play cinepack avi's

(cinepack avis are great solution but for upper reason I have to abband them. But if is allway possible on every win NT 95 98 to play cinepack avis it would be great)

Only solution which i have found was to install indeo codec dll's with regsvr32  so i will be certain that every machine on which I deploy app will be able to run my avis (also coded with indedeo 5 beacouse of upper reason).
However cinepack is much less gready about system resources so I will be happy if is possible with 100% risk free to be certain that every win system is capable of playing cinepack avis

Both Indeo and Cinepak should be installed on all Windows 95/98 and NT systems (of course not the latest versions). But it's hard to rely on this because they can easily be removed or replaced.
You could ship a recent version (6.4 right now) of Microsoft's MediaPlayer with your app. Then you will even be able to view MPEG1 movies.

As for the MediaPlayer component, just put it from the system palette to your form. Add a Panel, link the panel to the MediaPlayer component using the TMediaPlayer.Display property. Set AutoOpen to true and select a movie in the FileName property.

That's it.

:-) thanks a lot but My major problem was that that my app must be plug and run (insert cd on any machine and run) and not pnp (plug and pray) without setup allowed beacouse it is targeted to 'noninformatical' people with wery litle knowledge of english so it has to be simple as possible and I can not expect this people to be able to fiddle with setup's and somthing like that.

Best solution which I found is to register dll from indeo codec trough application with shell regsrv32.exe /s, minimized  so I can be 100% sure that animation will work and all is transparent and the user error safe

Thanks Epsylon and regards
