Hi Tiemo,

That won't work, because the window maybe be smaller or larger than  
the player. The change in window size may even be larger than the  
height or width of the player, causing the player to vanish  
altogether. Try this instead:

put the topleft of player "myPlayer" & comma & the width of this cd -  
32 & comma & the height of this cd - 32 into myRect
set the rect of player myPlayer to myRect

Best regards,
