This class provides information about the clip to be played. You do not have to track the values of the properties of this class because they are available with each event. For more information, see Scheduling Media Clips.


If the user clicks on the SmoothStreamingMediaElement surface while an inserted clip is playing, the delegate method that handles the event can access the Microsoft.Web.Media.SmoothStreaming.ClipContext from the ClipEventArgs. The ClipInformation property contains the Microsoft.Web.Media.SmoothStreaming.ClipInformation.ClickThroughUrl that was assigned when the ClipInformation object was initialized.

The following delegate opens a new browser window for the Microsoft.Web.Media.SmoothStreaming.ClipInformation.ClickThroughUrl.

void SmoothPlayer_ClipClickThrough(object sender, ClipEventArgs e)
        System.Windows.Browser.HtmlPage.Window.Navigate(e.Context.ClipInformation.ClickThroughUrl, "_newWindow");
