Creating an Interesting Places application – take and share media in Windows Phone 7

I wrote a new article to Nokia Developer Wiki. This code example demonstrate how to take an image, record audio or video and save these captured media files to the Isolated Storage with the location information. These Interesting Places with media files can be later viewed and shared to the server side. This code example uses PHP server as a back end of this application. All captured media files are send 500 kB chucks with RestSharp and parsed together in the server side with PHP. This application is tested with 5 min recorded video (for example), then video file size was 55 MB and sent chucks count was more than 110. Sent was tested over normal cellular network and sending takes about 8 minutes. It worked really nice in Windows Phone 7 without Background Agents.

Creating a streaming MP3 player in Windows Phone 7

I wrote a new article to Nokia Developer Wiki. In this article, I will show how you can create a streaming MP3 music player in Windows Phone 7. All the music files are stored in the server and are streamed to Windows Phone. Application first loads all the albums data from the server with JSON data. In server side, there are PHP script which loads ID3 tags from all the MP3 files and generates JSON string, which is returned to Windows Phone.

Latest, Favorite and Album songs are displayed in Panorama Page. User can play music in Player Page. This application uses Windows Phone Background Audio Agent to play MP3 music, so the music can be play in background like the original music player does in Windows Phone.
