Stopping external programs
« on: October 24, 2014, 07:24:50 am »
I need to start Windows Media Player to play a MP3 from a Laz program. That is working using ShellexecuteW but I want to be able to stop Media Player sometimes before it has completed the MP3. I have failed to find a method to do this.

No idea with Windows function. Using TProcess, you can simply Terminate it.

There is unit mmsystem. It is about playing, but I don't know if it instruments the whole of mediaplayer or only the codec part.
