2 thoughts on “Tutorial: Simple video player using WPF/C#

  1. I like your tutorial,it’s very simple and easy to understand. 🙂
    Where did you get the style for the video player at the beginning?
    And how one can implement the auto hide option,full screen mode,and different frame size like 16:9 or 4:3 ?

    1. Thank you!
      The idea behind the video player that i show at the start was to have a UI that doesn’t distract the user. A lot of video players show the UI at all times, its not necessary because a user doesn’t interact with the UI most of the time.

      I made a tutorial on how you would implement an auto hide function (it’s just a fade animation), you can check it out here: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=TocJyPEvc2Y

      As far as i know, there is no one line of code you can use to control the aspect ratio. I use a trick to do this, set the media element’s ‘Stretch’ property to fill and then put the media element inside of a canvas (or other container). Then programmatically control the size of the media element to the correct aspect ratio.
