Hi, is there anyway of getting the index of the current playing media?

like we have listview1.selected.index and it gives us the index [1], I'd like to be able to show the index of the media that is currently playing.

is there anyway of doing this?

for examples you'll have to import the activex windows media player dll which is on your computer.

a new way, simpler and works with same files in playlist.
function MediaIndex:integer;
var
  i:integer;
begin
with form1 do
  for i := 0 to WindowsMediaPlayer1.currentPlaylist.Count - 1 do
    if WindowsMediaPlayer1.currentPlaylist.Item[i].isIdentical[WindowsMediaPlayer1.currentMedia] = true then
      Result:=i;
end;

Open in new window

just found another much faster and simpler way.
wm:= WindowsMediaPlayer1.controlinterface.mediaCollection.add(FileProcess[i]);
wm.setItemInfo('index',inttostr(WindowsMediaPlayer1.controlinterface.currentplaylist.count));
WindowsMediaPlayer1.controlinterface.currentPlaylist.insertItem(WindowsMediaPlayer1.controlinterface.currentplaylist.count,wm);
ShowMessage(wm.getItemInfo('index'));
