How do I add a default image to my media player that is displayed before the user clicks the Play button?  Most video players these days seem to support this, but I can't seem to figure out which property to use. 

I've using the latest version of the Silverlight controls.

Any help is greatly appreciated!

Hello Alex Tushinsky,

 You can use the RadMediaItem.ImageSource property. It is doing exactly the thing you need. 
Please let us know if you have further questions.

That's exactly what I'm doing.  I can see the image when I view the Playlist, but not initially when the player loads.  Is there an additional setting that I need to set?

Also, is there a way to turn off the playlist option?

Thank you,
Alex

Hi Alex Tushinsky,

 Sorry for misleading you with my first post, but the MediaPlayer doesn't support poster image out of the box. You should do some work by your own. I tried with the following code and ti works ok for me.
I also hide the playlist as you wished.

<Grid x:Name="LayoutRoot" Background="White">
    <Grid.Resources>
        <telerik:InvertedBooleanToVisibilityConverter x:Key="converter" />
    </Grid.Resources>
    <telerik:RadMediaPlayer IsPlaylistVisible="False" x:Name="player">
        <telerik:RadMediaPlayer.Header>
            <Image Source="poster.png"
                    Visibility="{Binding Path=IsPlaying,ElementName=player, Converter={StaticResource converter}}" />
        </telerik:RadMediaPlayer.Header>
        <telerik:RadMediaItem Source="http://ecn.channel9.msdn.com/o9/pdc09/wmv/CL16.wmv" />
    </telerik:RadMediaPlayer>
</Grid>

Can try this approach and let us know if it is working for you?
Thank you.
