Stream audio using wmp.dll

Recommended Posts

Hi There,

First of all I want to say that I’m kind of new to developing for WinMo.

My question is in short: Is it possible to program a application that can stream live music from the web

I have VS 2008 installed with the Windows Mobile SDK’s and using WMDC for my device testing.

In my project I have added the wmp.dll as a reference and is playing local files with success.

But my main goal is to play live audio from the web, I have searched for hours on google but I am not able to find a solution.

The code I use for playing local files is:


WMPLib.WindowsMediaPlayer player = new WMPLib.WindowsMediaPlayer();

player.URL =  System.IO.Path.GetDirectoryName(System.Reflection.Assembly.GetExecutingAssembly().GetName().CodeBase)  + "\\LocalTest.mp3";

  player.settings.volume = 100;


If i use the URL and put a http link in there, then it isnt plating anything.

Does someone have some experience with this, and can send me in the right direction?

Kindly regards,
