I need to create thumbnails from code. I attached mouse event to the player and tried to do the following:
CoreSmoothStreamingMediaElement me = (sender as CoreSmoothStreamingMediaElement);
WriteableBitmap wb = new WriteableBitmap(me.NaturalVideoWidth, me.NaturalVideoHeight);
Image image = new Image();
image.Height = 70;
image.Source = wb;
This doesnt work. However if I use ExpressionPlayer and its MediaElement instead it works fine in the very same code.
Shall I report it as a bug?
