Hi all,
I am looking for a simpliest as possible Delphi 7 free component that can play .mpg and .avi files (divx).

I absolutely need two functionalities : ability of full screen mode and programming access to sound level

My goal : I like to watch a divix film while I am on bed (because the TV is in the living room), but i hate when I have to go out of my bed for :
- adjusting the sound level
- shut down the system after the film arrggg :-(
My idea is to use my wireless mouse as a remote control : using the mouse wheel to adjust the sound level, and a dbclick to close the application and automatically shuting down the system.

Import your MediaPlayer activeX and you can play any files from your system (if you have the required codecs on your system).

These suggestions come from me and not from Ivanov :)
My nickname is ginsonic.

Can you tell me the full reason for what you can't install the package ?  CTRL+C from error area.

I still suggest to use DSPack. Take a look at DSPACK23\Demos\DSVideoWinDowEx\PlayWin project.
