I need to play wma files on a web page.

I downloaded and installed the ASPNetAudio control.

This is my aspx page:

<br />
                <b>Use this page to select a song.</b>
          <br /><br />
    <ASPNetAudio:Audio ID="Audio1" runat="server" AudioURL="Music/01 He Already Knows.wma">
    </ASPNetAudio:Audio>
   
    <ASPNetMediaGUI:PlayButton ID="PlayButton1" runat="server"
        AssociatedControl="Audio1" MediaURL="~/Music/01 He Already Knows.wma">
   
    </ASPNetMediaGUI:PlayButton>
   
    <ASPNetMediaGUI:VolumeUpButton ID="VolumeUpButton1" runat="server"
        AssociatedControl="Audio1"></ASPNetMediaGUI:VolumeUpButton>
   
    <ASPNetMediaGUI:VolumeDownButton ID="VolumeDownButton1" runat="server"
        AssociatedControl="Audio1"></ASPNetMediaGUI:VolumeDownButton>
         
         
</asp:Content>

Is this control limited to playing wav files?
Is there another control available for playing wma files?

Me.PlayPageSound1.SoundFile = "applaus8.wav"

Could check whether the IIS has the MIME type set for .wma files

Help document on how to manage an MIME type

IIS has the MIME type set for .wma files

The wma type is inherited by the web site.

Here is the solution.

Create a HyperLink for each song to play.
The wma file will play in the Windows Media Window when the hyperlink is clicked.

You can populate a listbox that contains the wma file names. In this example the wma files are in the solution/Music folder.

Code:

  public void ListBox1_SelectedIndexChanged(object sender, EventArgs e)
    {
        if (ListBox1.SelectedIndex >= 1)
        {
            strPlayListSongName = ListBox1.SelectedItem.ToString();
            HyperLink1.Visible = true;
            HyperLink1.Text = "Click here to play " + strPlayListSongName;
            HyperLink1.NavigateUrl = "~/Music/" + strPlayListSongName + ".wma";
        }
        else
        {
            HyperLink1.Visible = false;
            HyperLink1.Text = "";
        }

    }
