    Hi Jill-Connie Lorentsen,

    Thanks for your question.

    We do not ship a media player control within our suite. However, there is an Integration example in our Demos Application which resembles the basic functionality and look and feel of Windows Media Player. You can take a look at it and grasp some ideas. This example uses the RadPlayer component which is basically a wrapper of the Windows Media Player API.

    You can read more about the RadPlayer class here:

    RadPlayer Class

    I hope this is useful.

    Hello Jill-Connie Lorentsen,

    Thanks for getting back to me.

    The Demo Application is installed with RadControls for WinForms. You can start it from the icon on your desktop or from the Windows Start Menu by navigating to the Telerik ->  RadControls for WinForms folder.

    I hope this helps. Do not hesitate to write back in case of further questions.

    Best wishes,
    Deyan

    Thanks, - I looked in the Demos on your web site...

    My first impression is that it is very good! I have a couple of questions, though:

    I can't find the RadPlayer in the toolbox of Visual Studio, - are there spesific steps I need to do to make it appear there?

    When playing an audio file, it there a component that can show a graph of the entire file, so I quickly can see which parts of the file are silent and which are very noisy? 


    Regards, JCL

    Hello Jill-Connie Lorentsen,

    Thanks for the positive feedback.

    Regarding your questions:

    1. RadPlayer is just a demo application which shows the capabilities of the UI components that we produce. It is not a component that we support. Therefore, we do not put it in the Visual Studio Toolbox. In other words, our RadPlayer demo is just a simple wrapper of the Windows Media Player functionality, i.e. we do not provide extra features. Our aim is to show that you can build Windows Media Player UI by using our tools.

    2. Producing a control which visualizes the amplitudes of an audio stream could be a good example of the utilization of our controls (the RadChart components for example). However, since it is more or less connected with processing of different audio formats, which we do not specialize in, we do not plan to implement such kind of components.

    I hope that my answers are helpful.

    Do not hesitate to get back to me in case of any further questions or feedback that you may have.

    All the best,
    Deyan

    I've started exploring the RadChart component for creating my own visualization of my audio file, and a couple of questions have appeared.

    I've read the file into a byte[], and set the DataSource to this array:

     

    radChart1.DataManager.DataSource = byteArray;

    radChart1.DataBind();

    My byteArray has thousands of elements, and it takes forever to load, so unless I can get it done quicker I'll have to think of something else. Do you have any ideas?

    Regards, JCL

    Hello Jill-Connie,

    RadChart will have problems with thousands of items on screen. While the product was designed to be easily customizable and feature rich it does not cope well with extremely busy charts. We are continually improving performance as we go but still the bottom line is that the control is targeted for casual situations which do not require a high performance solution. There is a trade off to make between high customization and high performance and we've gone the rich features path as it is what most of our customers are interested in.

    Please accept my sincere apologies
    for not being able to meet your requirements.

    Sincerely,
    Ves
