Anyone Have Media Player Activex Info?

I'm looking for information on the features and how to use the activex media player (D5).  I can find very little info when I google it, looking for how to use it compared to the Delphi media player VCL component, as I want to use the activex.  For example I'm looking for how to adjust the video size, make it full screen, stop and start new videos, etc..... the MS site had info on the features of this but it looks like its now gone?

is it what your looking for:

Windows Media Player Object Model Reference


Methods and properties representing the transport controls of Windows Media Player, such as Play, Stop, and Pause.

Windows Media Player 11 SDK

and to download the SDK

Look at the imported unit source: unit WMPLib_TLB.pas.

and have a look at It's maybe better than using the MS ActiveX.

To play MPEG Data  (very basic)

Sample code (Page in French but code easy to understand)

Sample code in VB/VBA (French)

Thats wonderfull if I'm building websites, but not for client side development. No where do I see the details on properties, etc. on this component

Most of that is still website related, the controls option I believe is what I'm looking for (haven't tried it yet but will try this week).  Thanks.
