I am creating a Welcome screen that pops up to a user the first time the run the application. I don't want the video to play right away but I want to show an image in the area where the video will be playing if they hit the play button, not just a black screen. How do I do this?
The easiest and most straightforward way to achieve this is by overlaying an image right above RadMediaPlayer. Then you can attach to the CurrentStateChanged event of RadMediaPlayer's MediaElement and toggle the visibility of the image.
I am attaching a sample project demonstrating this functionality. Let me know how it works for you.
