I have just given up on wpf media element - too many bugs / issues and problems.

So i have just remade my project to use the WPF mediakit, and it seemed to work ok, until i came to playing audio/video streams.
I want to be able to play radio / show tv from my app, current URIs include:

http://dix.media.webpartner.dk/voice128
http://www.dr.dk/tjenester/podcast/update.asx?qid=288417&odp=true&bitrate=high&bitrate=high

Any ideas on how i can use the MediaUriElement to play from these sources?

I am facing the same issue. I am trying to play audio and video served from octet-streams and I can't make it work yet.

Ok. I could solve my issue (I hope it will solve yours too).

The only thing needed was to add the format extension at the end of the URL. Apparently something happens with the parser.

If the original URI is www.myuri.com/mystream.php, and the format you are streaming is OGG, then you should put something like www.myuri.com/mystream.php?ext=.ogg

Hope this helps!
