See more: C# WPF Video player
Hello,
 
I've been struggling to answer this on Google.
 
I would like to create a c# wpf application to play video avi files. I would like to get access to each video frame to do some image processing.
 
From what I can see there is no native control in c# to do this (using .net 4).
 
People say that it should be possible with DirectX and XNA. I have been playing around with XNA but can't find any instructions for playing video in a wpf application.
 
What I would like is someone to point me in the right direction?
 

Kind regards....
 
John

You can use a winforms control in WPF, so I'd think you want to create a control that uses DX to do what you want, and then insert it that way. I've found that using those sort of controls can create rendering issues, I did that to import a winforms windows media player control, because of how bad the video support is in WPF ( it's truly awful, and I wasn't trying to do anything as complex as what you want to do ).
 
WPF IS DirectX though, so I'd have hoped there would be a way to create something that uses DirectX directly, without a winforms layer in the middle.
