Because most of our projects require us to learn new things we sometimes test some small things before using them in the real application. We decided that we will from now on provide some of these small projects for you. We will call these projects Minis.
The first Mini I would like to present to you is a small media player. This simple program was made with Windows Presentation Foundation. I created this Mini because the Last.fm Gobbler application will need to play media files later on. The Mini called Simple Music Player, demonstrates the insanely simple implementation of a media player in WPF.
You can download this Mini here.
Playing media files in WPF is easily implemented due to the MediaPlayer class, which is already in the library of WPF. This class is very straightforward, with some of the methods being called for example Open, Play, Pause and Stop.
We hope you enjoy this and future Minis.
