        I have build Resource Only DLL, say, 'TEST.DLL' contain Resource name 'TEST01' in which built from 'TEST.AVI' file in order to protect AVI from externally used with any AVI player... Then comes the time problems revealed....
         I've noticed that whenever I tried to Attached file AVI to TAnimate components and AVI is huge in size...It will then show Error message at design time 'Can't load AVI'. Then I turn back to smaller file size, it works properly...I've looked into code in Comctrls.PAS where TAnimate's source code lie... I wonder how to fix the problems or how to download any component capable of load AVI file over 4 MB from DLL or how to write a code to load AVI Resource from DLL and have it shown in form
         Show me full source code... I'll give you back my points, please....

hi,
TMediaplayer would be better..
i know you metioned
"in order to protect AVI from externally used with any AVI player... "
but you cant really protect it as there are many editors etc avialable on internet for getting the avi from the res dll anyway.

Hi,
I had a similiar problem with TAnimate.If u r not very keen on using TAnimate then may be this suggestion can be of use to you.

If u check MPlayer.pas(TMediaPlayer) source, u will find that the Display property of TMediaPlayer is of type TWincontrol...ie. u do not need to use TAnimate with TMediaPlayer....u can simply use any other TWincontrol component to display ur avi....and that too of a much bigger size..

Just drop a Panel (or any TWincontrol) on ur form.
Drop the MediaPlayer component and in its Display property select the TWincontrol dropped earlier(Panel).

At runtime click on the play button & there it is...



regards
PEGGY
