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?

Hi,

is it what your looking for:

Windows Media Player Object Model Reference
http://msdn.microsoft.com/library/default.asp?url=/library/en-us/wmpsdk11/mmp_sdk/windowsmediaplayerobjectmodelreference.asp

Player.fullScreen
http://msdn.microsoft.com/library/default.asp?url=/library/en-us/wmpsdk11/mmp_sdk/playeruimode.asp


Controls
Methods and properties representing the transport controls of Windows Media Player, such as Play, Stop, and Pause.
http://msdn.microsoft.com/library/default.asp?url=/library/en-us/wmpsdk11/mmp_sdk/objectmodelreferenceforscripting.asp


Windows Media Player 11 SDK
http://msdn.microsoft.com/library/default.asp?url=/library/en-us/wmpsdk11/mmp_sdk/kwindowsmediaplayer11sdk.asp


and to download the SDK
http://msdn2.microsoft.com/en-us/downloads/default.aspx

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

and have a look at http://www.progdigy.com/modules.php?name=DSPack. It's maybe better than using the MS ActiveX.

To play MPEG Data
http://www.dsdt.info/tipps/?id=578  (very basic)

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

Sample code in VB/VBA (French)

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.
