It was a long weekend here in the UK and it rained a little and so I had a bit of spare time to put together a make-it-up-as-you-go-along screencasts around a simplistic Windows 8 metro style app that lets me play music from albums found in my music library.
As always, I’m not suggesting this is “perfect” or “correct” but I thought it might be useful and along the way it touches on some topics like;
This ended up as 6 separate screencast videos that I’ve linked to below in order – I’m not sure whether Vimeo is the best means for this or not as my strong recommendation would be to download the videos and then play them at 1.6 to 1.8 times their original speed as it makes my voice less boring
Enjoy. I have some more of these (with a little more structure to them perhaps ) which I’m hoping to push to Channel 9 at some point in the coming weeks or, alternatively, I’ll drop them out here if that doesn’t work out.

hi its a very good tutorial for metro style apps...
in album page how can i bind the song image..
album page u r binding song name,duration and bitrate at the same i want to add song image on that page..
You would bind it the same way as I did for the album image. You can get a thumbnail for each track but it will be the same image for all of them.
i tried binding the images as of the album image but no image is getting displayed in the list view of the tracks
can u pls guide me in this
Hi Mike, sorry I cannot download the video... can you kindly help? Thanks.
What's the problem with downloading the video?
Nice post. It would be even better if this site featured stand demos of these features so that users can get a clean look at the code. Please add a demo section containing a working implementation plus an explanation of the code.Buying and taking that plugin and integrating it into WP is really good for beginers .
I would just like to share with everyone,<a href="http://html5socket.com">html5 video player</a>.

Microsoft je još u oktobru prošle godine tokom Build konferencije ponudio veliki broj informacija vezanih za razvoj Windows 8 Metro Style aplikacija, odnosno o novoj generaciji Visual Studio paketa. Korisnici i programeri već sada mogu preuzeti
when i load the app, i dont get any images for my albums. no errors either. yet, when i open the albums up in windows media player or VLC, the album artwork appears.
how can i make the artwork appear? is there a way to set thumbnails?
I was following tutorial 6, and did everything you had done up to 7:10 into the video. Yet, my state is not being saved.
I am using the release preview of Win 8 and Visual Studio 12, but everything else in your videos has been working up until now. Do you know any reason why the state isn't being saved.
never mind my question, i was able to fix it after a reboot of visual studios
