Please accept our apology for the delayed response.
Indeed there were some issues with the AutoPlay
feature in the 2010_1_0218 version of the RadMediaPlayer
. However, they are now fixed, so it would be better if you can use the latest official release - 2010 Q3. Also, in that release the RadMediaPlayer
supports built-in implementation of FullScreen scenarios.
With the latest release of the RadMediaPlayer
property controls whether an item will be played automatically when selected or not. The SelectedIndex
property, on the other hand, controls which item to be played when the RadMediaPlayer
is initialized. If the SelectedIndex
property isn't set, no items will be initially played.
Also, there is a bug in the RadMediaPlayer
and the themes cannot be applied, but I logged it in our PITS
under the name MediaPlayer: Cannot apply a theme
and you will be able to track it from tomorrow the latest. We will do our best to fix this issue as soon as possible and I would like to thank you for bringing it to our attention. Therefore I updated your Telerik points accordingly.
In the meantime you can set an application theme, which will be applied to the RadMediaPlayer
StyleManager.ApplicationTheme = new VistaTheme();
Also, the FullScreen
functionality of the RadMediaPlayer
can be controlled via the IsFullScreen
property, but please keep in mind that the RadMediaPlayer
can only go to a FullScreen
state only on a user initiated action.Therfore you can either define a custom button to set the RadMediaPlayer IsFullScreen
property, or use the FullScreen
button in the RadMediaPlayer
Also, the RadMediaPlayer
control is a wrapper around the Microsoft's MediaElement
component. Therefore it only displays a video but cannot manipulate it. This is why the control doesn't support adding text inside the played video.
I hope this info will help you. Please let us know if we can further assist you.
