TAnimate can only open uncompressed AVI and/or those compressed using RLE. If your AVI in the DLL is compressed using some other codec, TAnimate won't work

erm... make sure the spelling is correct? It is case-sensitive.

I have written an example on how to do it:

(check the sample app "How to create and use resource-only DLLs". the techniques described are exactly what you want).

hi simonet
I test ur example but u do not solve the problem which happen when u tray to play avi.
this is ur mark and the code:-

  // Always check if the module is loaded before
  // Trying to access it.
  if ResDLLMod=0 then exit;
  // Ok, the routine below looks like a real mess.
  // The problem is that this TAnimate component is anything but a
  // friendly guy.
  // There are ways to improve the routine below, but I just don't have
  // the patience right now.
  try
  with Animate1 do
  try
     try
        ResHandle := ResDLLMod;
     finally
        ResName := 'BORLANDCOOL';
     end;
  finally
     Play(1, FrameCount, 0);
  end;
  except
//
  end;
end;
