I absolutely love the .NET Framework, but as a developer doing a audio application, where streaming audio in different formats is essential, I believe this is a major hole in the .NET experience. I have to use some 3rd party library like BASS + the BASS .NET wrapper. I don't think that is optimal in any way since many apps is going to have some kind of multimedia experience in the future.
I'd wish I could use the Windows Media Player control, but it's very limiting.
- Can only play Windows Media formats.
- No recording functionality.
- Have to use interop.
Anyone with the same experience?
