A couple of items:
1. Can a separate Thread/Topic for "MediaPlayer" be set up  in "aspnet-core-ui"?
2. I find that the Source does not appear to work...(ie. localhost under  wwwroot)

   I have tried the following variations in the code below (the source to youtube works) ... any recommendations?

                .Source( "assets/Videos/MyVideo.mp4")  

                .Source( "~/assets/Videos/MyVideo.mp4")  

                .Source( "~assets/Videos/MyVideo.mp4")  

    @(Html.Kendo().MediaPlayer()
            .Name("mediaPlayer")
            .AutoPlay(true)
            .Navigatable(true)
            .Media(m => m
                .Title("Recap of Progress Ringing The Bell at Nasdaq (2016)")
                .Source( "~/assets/Videos/MyVideo.mp4")            
            )
            .HtmlAttributes(new { style = "height:360px" })
            .Deferred()
    )

Hi Les,

Does it work when playing a YouTube source?
http://demos.telerik.com/aspnet-core/mediaplayer/index

Or when the video is located in another folder:
http://docs.telerik.com/aspnet-mvc/helpers/mediaplayer/overview#initialize-the-mediaplayer

You can play the original source with a regular HTML5 video tag and see whether it runs as expected to ensure that the path is correct:
http://www.w3schools.com/html/html5_video.asp

It does work with YouTube & HTML 5.

The scenario does not work with the following Telerik example:

Or when the video is located in another folder:
http://docs.telerik.com/aspnet-mvc/helpers/mediaplayer/overview#initialize-the-mediaplayer

I even tried the following:

Scenario 1

                .Source(new[] {
                     new { quality = "480p", url = "assets/Videos/MyVideo.mp4" }
                })

Scenario 2

                .Source(new[] {
                     new { quality = "480p", url = "~/assets/Videos/MyVideo.mp4" }
                })

I just tried the following and it works...

                .Source(new[] {
                     new {  url = Url.Content("~/Assets/Videos/MyAppModel2.mp4") }
                })

I am under the impression that I shouldn't have to use Url.Content.

I am now on my way.

Thanks

Hi, I am now having an issue with your Playlist demo....the demo works fine with Youtube....but does not with local files....

http://demos.telerik.com/aspnet-core/mediaplayer/playlist

Could this be related to the url & Url.Content as mentioned above?

Regards,

Les

Hello Les,

Yes, you are correct. You can try to use one of the following approaches to achieve this requirement, which will pass the correct path to the media player component:
Url.Content("~/Video/video1.mp4")
"../Video/video1.mp4"
