Silverlight-Based SeeqPod Player
Over the last few weeks I became interested in SeeqPod. Essentially it is a site that crawls the web and looks for open music files on servers. It has impleneted a search page and a search API. The SeeqPod site uses a Flash player to play the found music. I decided to use their API and create my own player using Silverlight.
The result is a little Silverlight app that shows off a couple of interesting techniques:
- Uses WCF’s REST stack to retieve results from a site’s web service and feed the results to a Silverlight app.
- Layering of HTML controls over a Silverlight control including supporting the Enter key to access the Silverlight control.
- Shows several control written in Silverlight 1.1 and shows nesting of controls in other controls.
Take a look when you have a chance and i’d love any feedback you have. The source code is available on the SilverlightPod page.
