I use this mediaplayer and try and set the time into normal minutes : seconds format but the results look really odd... like 153:940. Plus I was curious how I can make this refresh to show the time count down not just display the length one time.

type
  MSFRec = record
    Minutes: byte;
    Seconds: byte;
    Frames: byte;
    NotUsed: byte;
  end;

procedure TfrmMain.Song;
var
  TheLength: LongInt;
begin
MediaPlayer1.TimeFormat := tfMSF;
TheLength := MediaPlayer1.Length;
with MSFRec(TheLength) do
begin
  len := IntToStr(Minutes); {Display Minutes }
  len := len + ':' + IntToStr(Seconds); {Display Seconds}
end;
lblLen.Caption := len;

Hi.
This should do the job (I hope):

//Add this function
function MilliSecondsToString(MilliSeconds: integer): string;
var i1, i2: integer;
begin
i1:=(MilliSeconds div 1000) div 60; i2:=(MilliSeconds div 1000)-(i1*60);
Result:=FormatFloat('00',i1)+':'+FormatFloat('00',i2);
end;

//Put in a Label and a timer, in the ontimer add this
Label1.caption := (MilliSecondsToString(MediaPlayer1.Length)+' - '+(MilliSecondsToString(MediaPlayer1.Position)));

//Remember to enable the timer when the Medieplayer knows what file to play

Hi,
The problem obviously is that tfMilliseconds format is supported by your device and the others are not.

Regards, Geo

This did not work. The data is still showing up in an odd format. 234:240 and so forth...

I do not know what will work to make it show real minutes and real seconds?

geobul what do you propose?

Oh wait a second here I was too quick to judge. Your idea might work and I did something wrong... let me try something else.
