Hi!

We have two issues concerning the title of this post:

1) We're porting an application from VB6 to WPF. In VB6 we're using QuickTimePlayer to play MP4 files, but WPF MediaPlayer does not native play them and there is not any Support/Control using QuickTimePlayer directly. Questions: Is there a way to get MP4 files running in MediaPlayer (ideally without installing huge codec packages)? Or is there a way to get QuickTimePlayer into WPF not using WindowsFormsHost?

2) In the WPF application we need to play video files from stream because they are cryptographically secured an will be encrypted while streaming to the player (because only the application itself should be able to play the files). Is there a way within MediaPlayer?

Thx!

Hi Irena Hahn,
 
1) As far as i know this is machine configuration dependent, so maybe clients will need codecs to play it. (Maybe it'll be possible to install them with your application) . There is discussion about that on the msdn .net forum.

2) I think you won't have any problems playing encrypted video with WPF's MediaElement.

Hope this helps you.
