Controls not visible when relative height/width used


Need to make sure if a user doesn't set height/width that the controls still display correctly even if width is wrong.

Here's a file that illustrates the problem.

BTW, you folks probably already know this, but if you put a break point in VideoPlayer.Content_FullScreenChanged() once the event handler is invoked, your next action will be to kill the browser from the task manager :)

HelenW -- just as a workaround remember to set the object or containing html element to the resolution of the video (which in your sample is 320x240). When set it works fine (see sshot-1.png attached to this item)

Thanks for the tip Tim.

For anyone else who wants to deal with this, here is my code for the MediaOpened event handler:

private void Media_MediaOpened(object sender, RoutedEventArgs e)
  double vidHeight = (double)MyPlayer.Media.NaturalVideoHeight;
  double vidWidth = (double)MyPlayer.Media.NaturalVideoWidth;

  double playerHeight = MyPlayer.Height;
  double playerWidth = MyPlayer.Width;

  double heightRatio = vidHeight / playerHeight;
  double widthRatio = vidWidth / playerWidth;
  double ratio = heightRatio;
  if (widthRatio > ratio)
    ratio = widthRatio;
  MyPlayer.Media.Width = vidWidth / ratio;
  MyPlayer.Media.Height = vidHeight / ratio;

Great -- submit that as a patch!

OK, I've attached the code from VideoPlayerThemed.VideoPlayer mediaPlayer_MediaOpened event handler. This may need to go futher up the food chain.

Other than that, how do I go about submitting a patch?
