This article will give step to step illustration of creating a simple media application for Windows 7 mobile.

Step 1

Create a new Windows Phone Application. From Silverlight for Windows Phone tab select Windows Phone Application project type.

Design page.
  1. Divide content grid in two rows
  2. In first row put a media element control

using System.Windows.Documents;
using System.Windows.Input;
using System.Windows.Media;
using System.Windows.Media.Animation;
using System.Windows.Shapes;
using Microsoft.Phone.Controls;

namespace PhotoApplication
    public partial class MainPage : PhoneApplicationPage
        public MainPage()

            SupportedOrientations = SupportedPageOrientation.Portrait | SupportedPageOrientation.Landscape;
            btnPlay.Click += new RoutedEventHandler(btnPlay_Click);

        void btnPlay_Click(object sender, RoutedEventArgs e)
            mediactrl.Source = new Uri("a.wmv", UriKind.Relative);
