Playing local audio files with .NET MAUI

6 days ago |David Britch

Previously I wrote about playing audio with .NET MAUI on Android, iOS, Mac Catalyst, and Windows. The main problem with my implementation was that the FilePicker for picking local audio files only worked on Windows. On iOS/Android it let you browse the device, and displayed audio files, but it didn’t let you select an audio file. On Mac Catalyst it did nothing at all. I was convinced these were MAUI bugs.

Playing audio with .NET MAUI

11 days ago |David Britch

Many apps, whether mobile or desktop, require the ability to play audio. That audio may be remote, stored in the app bundle, or be chosen from the user’s device. However, .NET MAUI currently doesn’t have a cross-platform control capable of playing audio. However, all of the underlying platforms that .NET MAUI supports have native controls for playing audio. Android has MediaPlayer, iOS/Mac Catalyst has AVPlayer, and WinUI has MediaPlayerElement (only available in WinAppSDK 1.

Playing video with .NET MAUI on Windows

18 days ago |David Britch

Previously I wrote about playing video with .NET MAUI on Android, iOS, and Mac Catalyst. The problem platform was Windows because WinUI 3 lacked any media playback controls. This has been rectified with the preview release of the WinAppSDK v1.2, which contains the MediaPlayerElement and MediaTransportControls types. If you want to know how to use these types, see Media players.I’ve updated my VideoPlayer code with Windows support, so it’s now a truly cross-platform Video control.
