You can add multimedia components to your applications. To do this, you can use either the Vcl.ComCtrls.TAnimate component on the Win32 page or the Vcl.MPlayer.TMediaPlayer component on the System category of the Tool palette. Use the animate component when you want to add silent video clips to your application. Use the media player component when you want to add audio and/or video clips to an application.

Note: If you are using Windows 7, you need to add ShellAnimations to your uses clause (Delphi) or #include ShellAnimations (C++) so that the CommonAVIs (such as Vcl.ComCtrls.TAnimateParams.CommonAVI) work correctly. This addition links AVI resources similar to the ones in Windows XP.
