    Hi Thomas,

    There are couple of approaches you can take when implementing this scenario. First of all, you could edit the ControlTemplate of RadMediaPlayer in Expression Blend and change the position of the Playlist to wherever you like. For example, you could add a Grid with 2 columns. In the first column will be the media player and in the second column will be the playlist. For a more detailed explanation please refer to the attached image(blend-screenshot.png) and sample project ( The sample project is a C# project, but it is only XAML code and no C# code, so I assume it would be no problem.

    The other approach is to create an external playlist (ListBox for example) and every time the selection changes, to feed the media player with an item. For more detailed explanation, please take a look at the attached sample project (

    If you have additional questions, let us know.

I did create a similar one using the windows listbox and media player element. However, I would like to learn a bit more about the control template approach. I learn by seeing and doing...

    Hello Fred,

    As you can see the post of Kiril Stanoev is from 2009. Till now we have changed the default ControlTemplate of the RadMediaPlayer. This is why it would be better to start over with the new ControlTemplate. You can implement the already mentioned approach in the new template. You can find out how you can edit the default Template in this article.

    Please try to customize the ControlTemplate and let us know if you encounter any difficulties.
