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.

I'm not sure if this is correct because I can't test it but give it a try:

function getCurrentMediaIndex(WMP: TWindowsMediaPlayer; cm: IWMPMedia): Integer;
var
  pl: IWMPPlaylist;
  pm: IWMPMedia;
  i: Integer;
begin
  Result := -1;
  pl := WMP.currentPlaylist;
  for i := 0 to pl.count-1 do
  begin
    pm := pl.Item[i];
    // Not sure if this is the property or attribute to check
    if pm.name = cm.name then
      Result := i;
  end;
end;
 
procedure TForm1.Button1Click(Sender: TObject);
var
  cm: IWMPMedia;
begin
  cm := WMP1.currentMedia;
  ShowMessage(IntToStr(getCurrentMediaIndex(WMP1, cm)));
end;

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;

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'));
