Video in Avalon Beta 1 RC

Some gotchas with video in this release:


–It requires Windows Media Player 10 be installed on the machine.

–It only plays .wma and .wmv files.

–It requires the latest video drivers for most video cards. (For sure on ATI Radeon 9600/9700, which is what I have.)


Here’s a simple file you can put into XAMLPad to see it working:


<Grid xmlns=”” >
   <MediaElement Name=”myVideo” Source=”C:\WINDOWS\system32\oobe\images\intro.wmv” Stretch=”Fill” />
