TMediaPlayer->Display problem

TMediaPlayer->Display problem

Post by Mark Barto » Sat, 23 Jan 1999 04:00:00

I am attempting to get an overlay device to display it's contents on a panel
I create.  I think I've tried about everything.  Using the sample code
provided, doesn't work.  The device will open and I can hear the audio but
the picture will not show.  If I use mciSendString("Window deviceID" etc) it
will display in it's own window.  I added a TMediaPlayer to my form and then
attempt to use the following code when a button is pressed but no luck.

    wintv->DeviceType = dtOverlay;
    wintv->Display = Panel1;
    wintv->DisplayRect = MyRect(0,0,Panel1->Width,Panel1->Height);

I've even tried adding wintv->Play(); but nothing seems to work.  Any ideas?


1. TMediaPlayer display problem when switching BorderStyle from bsNone to bsSizeable and vice versa

I use TMediaPlayer to play a MPEG file.
I want to switch to full screen mode using BorderStyle := bsNone
but the display becomes a blank screen only with sound.
Or if it is initially BorderStyle := bsNone and switch to bsSizeable,
the display becomes blank too.
What is the problem?

Thanks in advance.
