The Org.Mentalis.Multimedia namespace provides a managed implementation of the Win32 Media Control Interface. The classes can be used to play music and video files from within your .NET applications.
The classes support every file type the MCI support. On most computers this includes WAVE, MIDI, MP3, AVI, DivX and MPEG. If you make sure your end user has drivers installed for a specific filetype, these classes can support that filetype too. You could say these classes support every filetype that's supported by Windows Media Player on that computer.
Note: If you only need to play WAVE files, we recommend using the WaveFile class.
The classes are written in C# and VB.NET; they can be compiled to .NET modules or libraries to be used in other .NET languages. Since they rely on the Windows MCI API, they will not work under Linux or FreeBSD.
