Hi:

I am extremely new to silverlight but was trying to get a database table full of urls that point to videos on google, youtube, etc. to create a playlist inside of the telerik silverlight media player. Does anyone have a good example of this?

Thanks,

Eric

Hello Eric,

we do not have such an example yet, but we are working on such. The example will be ready till the end of next week.

Here is a list of steps that you should do in order to achieve the scenario.
1. Create a web service that will serve the data from your database.
2. In Silverlight connect to the web service and get the data as a collection.
3. Bind the MediaPlayer to that collection.

Let us know if you hav any qustions. Later next week you will have the example working in our QuickStart application, available online.

Thanks Valentin:

Can you give me a date as I am on a timeframe with a client and will need some time to work through the example? Has anyone else attempted to do this?

Hi everyone,

The attached file is a sample project that demonstrates how to populate media player's playlist from a feed.

Also, you can see how to change the playlist of a media player so that you can display both declaratively created media items and dynamically created ones.
We will produce a step-by-step tutorial with explanations as soon as possible, but for the moment you can play around with the project and change it accordingly.

Best wishes,
Kiril
