By Example: Error Handling with the ASP.NET MediaPlayer for Silverlight

The MediaPlayer class provides a player that runs media (video or audio) using Silverlight in an ASP.NET Web page. The MediaPlayer class reference documentation includes simple error handling code used with the MediaPlayer server control. This post provides a link to C# and VB source code, as well as an example you can run.

The OnPluginError attribute and the OnClientMediaFailed attribute of the MediaPlayer server control can be used to process client error events using JavaScript functions.

For code examples and more information, see MediaPlayer Class reference in the MSDN Library.
