Hello.

The TMediaplayer component included with Delphi uses and old MCI method to play media, thats why it won't support XVid. You must import the activex version of the MS Windows Media Player, once you have the component installed you can playing anything the windows media player can as long as the Xvid codec is installed of course.

Another method is to use DSPack,
