The code snippet was written for one of the earlierĀ versions of Delphi but I tested it out in Delphi XE7 Firemonkey and it plays sounds on both Windows and Mac OSX. On Mac OSX it uses the NSSound object (as TNSSound) and on Windows it uses the PlaySound Win32 API call. There are other ways to call NSSound but this way worked on a very recent Mac OSX version. It should also work for you in Appmethod. If you are looking to play sounds on Android and IOS as well you should check out the TGameAudioManager component. Here is the code snippet:
