For a metro style app using XAML/C#, Is it possible to customize the player controls i.e.

1. Replace standard play or mute icon with our own icons.

2. Remove a control like removing the timeline bar/progress bar showing the video played time.

How can this be done ?

Hello, yes, you can style the player by subsituting your own xaml for the framework by setting the Style property.

We're working on a new sample to help demonstrate this and will be releasing it soon.
