Read-Watch-Run: Using the ASP.NET MediaPlayer Control for Silverlight

The ASP.NET MediaPlayer server control enables you to integrate media sources such as audio (WMA) and video (WMV) into a Web application, without requiring any knowledge of XAML or JavaScript. The MediaPlayer control generates the appropriate markup and code to display and control media in the media player UI. The MediaPlayer control can use pre-built skins, or you can create custom skins.
