confirming .wmv and .asx file issue

Jan 16, 2009 at 7:29 PM
Hello, I've noticed that when I switch the video file type from an .asx to a .wmv file, the media control panel at the bottom does not display.  Only the large, on-screen play arrow appears (but no control panel at the buttom).  I just wanted to confirm if this has occurred with anyone else.

For example (In the initParameters):

Just for testing purposes, I changed the media source from : 
http://www.sonypictures.com/movies/21/video/trailer/21_trailer_high.asx
to
http://download.microsoft.com/download/8/4/2/8427e8fd-b392-4099-ae1b-d626a71dc617/HaloWars_ESRB_360p30_ST_1500kbps.wmv

I realize that the .asx file is a playlist file and the .wmv is a video file.  Could that be why the behavior of the video player is affected?  Ideally, I would create an .asx file with multiple .wmv files, but for testing purposes, I'm just wondering why the media control panel does not display when using .wmv (or any other compatible video file).

How would I handle this issue to play .other compatible file types?

thanks,

I truly apologies for that last posting.  Apparently, the default height of the silverlight control container was set to 240 px by default.  I just hasd to set the height a ltiitle larger.  The container was hiding the media control panel.  As for this discussion subject.  There is no issue. Sorry about that.

thanks,
