I’ll take a few other routes first before I start getting frustrated, but at the moment, I’m going through the first lab which is in Chapter 6 which has you working more closely in XAML and codebehind than the book has done up until this point, and its pretty darn simple, but I’m wondering if there’s something that I should be doing that I am not – perhaps its because my version of blend is 2.5 not 2.0.

In any event, I’m going through the steps, he has you hand-code the xaml to have the MediaElement, give it a name, set the LoadedBehavior to Manual, bring in a video source and modify its properties, then set in the codebehind for your element to play … and then F5 to debug.

Mine has no errors reported, but all I’m getting is the gradient which I set my Window background to.
