The latest update has been pushed for certification and should be available for everyone by the end of the week.

The app has been renamed to Media Player XP Pro.

Thanks for your effort!! Maybe in the next releases you could add the posibility of show the lyrics of the songs which are embebed in the ID3 Tag. I miss this feature of my old android.

It's only an idea.

I have discovered that the playlist engine is not working properly. This will be fixed in the net update.

The next update will also give you some degree of costumization over the interface.

EDIT: While i was in the shower i figured a news feed would be useful.

Sadly, i have a lot of projects to work on at the moment, development might be slowed down a bit, but the next major update will bring users the ability to do the following appearance customizations. You will notice the help+settings pivot has a new, empty tab in the next update.

1) change backgrounds (solid color, picture from picture library, slide shows)

2) change all title and text color in the application.

3) change the color of the app bar.

And that would be the first wave of customization.

After that, if i have time, add a theme engine and be able to customize themes from the desktop client and also replace visual assets (like images) with custom made ones.

That's a nice project :3 better than nokia or default player

I only have a question, how do you manage to integrate some new codecs to play flac? I am amazed. I was trying hard to integrate some new video codecs but I never get it :S

Congrats!

You need a media stream source.

I've written this article to explain how to create a FLAC media stream source. It also explains how media stream sources work in general.

You will use a MediaElement instead of a background audio player. You will use its .SetSource method to a media stream source to play video samples.
