  • Hello,

    The behavior you are describing is by design. The MediaElement is automatically paused when it's parent's visibility becomes "collapsed". You will need to add the MediaElement to the page. You should have no problem referencing the MediaElement from your controls embedded in the app bar. The functionality should be the same.

    I hope this helps,

    NOTE: If I ask for code, please provide something that I can drop directly into a project and run (including XAML), or an actual application project. I'm trying to help a lot of people, so I don't have time to figure out weird snippets with undefined objects and unknown namespaces.

  • because i wanted to use the transport controls in app bar, as the manually configured transport controls are not working normal as the seek bar is misbehaving.

    so i just shifted media element into app bar. but media element not working until the app bar is opened
