    I am trying to get the radmediaplayer to resize itself if a source video is in portrait mode.

    I have a fixed width of 350px available in my UI for the player to be displayed.
    The height of the player is allowed to change to fit the video.

    I would expect the following code to do the trick but it doesn't.

    private RadMediaItem CreateVideoMediaItem(Guid contentId, string previewFilePath)
      _radMediaPlayer.Width = 350;
      return new RadMediaItem
        Source = new Uri(GetUri(contentId, previewFilePath)),
        IsSelected = true,
        VideoStretch = Stretch.Uniform

    I tried all other modes of the VideoStrech enumeration but no luck.
    I also thought that maybe I could set the height and width of the player manually after looking at the original video source's dimensions but these do not seem to be available.

    The properties player.MediaElement.NaturalVideoHeight/Width as described in this post are still 0 after 

    here I have uploaded a sample portrait video:
