TMediaPlayer (or TActiveMovie) not capable to use rate property?
Posted on 2003-10-27
i am into this problem since over a week now.
Situation: I have 4 video windows (MediaPlayer ActiveX version 6.4) created
at run time within MDI childs.
Every Player has its own files which are reloaded by a getfile procedure i wrote.
I have some cutom made controls like play, stop, pause etc.
Problem: I want to implement a fast forward and a fast rewind button, which
rewinds or forwards the videos.
The MediaPlayer 6.4 ActiveX has a method called "rate". This can be between
1 to 10 to play faster (2=double speed, 4=quad speed etc).
The method can also be from -1 to -10 to reverse playback the video. But this
doesnt work - it does nothing it seems.
I am using avi-format files without marker positions.
The illogical thing is, it plays very fast with positive rate values, but not
reverse with negative values.
So someone know how to solve this problem, or knows of a workaround (not
writing my own procedure which repositions the "currentposition" every 100ms) ?
thanks for your time.
I will also spend a lot of more points if you need them to show me a proper
