    Hello everyone,


    first of all, let me wish you happy New Year. May I ask whether there is a way to achieve following in the present version of RadMediaPlayer for Silverlight?


    • Video download progress indicator in the YouTube style.
    • Automatic return to playlist after an item is finished.


    So far I was unable find this functionality exposed.

    Overall, I would love to see a more rapid innovation with RadMediaPlayer. It seems to me like other controls are leaping forward but with RadMediaPlayer there are only bug fixes and maintenance. Hopefully the year 2010 will bring some great advancements in this regard. Thank you.

    Hello Jan,

    Happy New Year to you too.
    Beforehand, I'd like to say that during 2010 we will be working on improving RadMediaPlayer significantly.
    Now to your questions. When you say "Video download progress indicator in YouTube..." do you refer to the following:

    If so, this feature will definitely be implemented in RadMediaPlayer's next version.
    To show the playlist after the item has finished, you can subscribe for the MediaEnded event of RadMediaPlayer and simply set IsPlaylistVisible to true.

    private void mediaPlayer1_MediaEnded(object sender, Telerik.Windows.RadRoutedEventArgs e)
        mediaPlayer1.IsPlaylistVisible = true;

    Let me know if this works for you.
    Thank you for the great feedback and if you have additional suggestions or comments, do not hesitate to contact us.

    Sincerely yours,
    Kiril Stanoev

    Hi p k,

    Unfortunately the RadMediaPlayer doesn't support such scenarios since it only enwraps the MediaElements.
