Hi,

I want to play a video within my application at run time on a click event. I found this code online, how can I tweek it to do what I want?

What references will I need to add?

I am using Vb.NEt and a WPF Application
Private Sub Button1_Click(ByVal sender As System.Object, ByVal e As System.EventArgs) Handles Button1.Click
        Dim MyStream As System.IO.Stream = System.Reflection.Assembly.GetExecutingAssembly.GetManifestResourceStream("WindowsApplication1.lesson1.mpg")
        Dim MyFileStream As New System.IO.FileStream("TempFile.mpg", FileMode.Create)
        Dim MyBinaryWriter As New BinaryWriter(MyFileStream)

        Try
            Dim MyByte As Byte = MyStream.ReadByte
            While Not MyByte = -1
                MyBinaryWriter.Write(MyByte)
                MyByte = MyStream.ReadByte
            End While
        Catch ex As Exception
        Finally
            MyFileStream.Close()
        End Try
        MyMovie.FileName = "TempFile.mpg"
        MyMovie.Play()

    End Sub

    Private Sub MyMovie_EndOfStream(ByVal sender As Object, ByVal e As AxMediaPlayer._MediaPlayerEvents_EndOfStreamEvent) Handles MyMovie.EndOfStream
        MyMovie.FileName = Nothing
        File.Delete("TempFile.mpg")
    End Sub

The tutorial was good, and the only thing relevant to me from that tutorial is the button_play.

All that does is just plays the video, I have the same code, but nothing plays...

It gave me an error first that either loadedbehaviour or unloadedbehaviour has to be set to manual, so I set loadbehaviour = play and unloadbehaviour = manual

and now nothing happens :(

I need this ASAP !!

'The button which plays the video element

Private Sub Button2_Click(ByVal sender As System.Object, ByVal e As System.Windows.RoutedEventArgs) Handles Button2.Click
            MediaElement1.Play()
            MediaElement1.IsEnabled = MediaElement1.IsLoaded
            Button_Coder_Trailers(Button2)
        End Sub
' The code for the media element
<MediaElement Source="/MoviesOnTheGo;component/morningglory_trlr_01_480p_dl.wmv" Name="MediaElement1" LoadedBehavior="Play" Margin="0,0,0,0" Stretch="Fill" UnloadedBehavior="Manual" />
