Windows Presentation Foundation: Live on YouTube

Over the last week or so, I've had a couple of people point out some cool videos of WPF that have been posted up, so I thought I'd collate these for your interest and entertainment. If you want to be wowed by some of the cool things people are doing with WPF, check out a couple of the items on this list. 

  • WPF Mashup. A demo reel of some of the applications that are being built using Windows Presentation Foundation.
  • WPF in Action. From MIX06, Fluid (one of the leading design agencies) show off some of the prototypes and applications they've built using WPF.
  • Introduction to WPF (Parts II, III, IV). Fil Fortes shows how to build a fully-fledged WPF application in twenty minutes that uses 3D, data binding, rich typography and imaging with both XAML and C#.
  • Ink CapabilitiesNigel Parker provides an incredibly compelling demonstration of the power that's available when you combine WPF and Tablet PC inking features.
  • Big Screen Business. If you thought Windows Media Center was only useful for playing TV, check out this great finance kiosk built by There's also a high-res version of the video here. While you're at it, also check out their Media Center add-in that displays Flickr photos.

Are you doing something cool with WPF? Why not upload your video to YouTube, the MSN Soapbox (if you've got an invitation) or even upload a sample to the Channel 9 sandbox - we'll make a star out of you!

    Speaking of WPF, I would like to know what noone seems to bother telling me:

    1.   For Video, does WPF support all video formats and container types supported by DirectShow if the necessary codec decoders and format parsers are installed?

    2.   Do you plan to have any extensible audio-video codec framework for the next version of WPF, similar to the WIC (Windows imaging component) in the current version of WPF?

    3.   Can bitmap effects applied to videos as well? Will MS provide the bitmap effects themselves without relying on 3rd parties? Where are the bitmap effects in RC1?

    4.   Can DirectX audio effects be used in WPF apps?
