Storage file to System uri?

I have a Windows Metro app written in c#.

Here is the code I am using to pick a file from a local music library:

FileOpenPicker openPicker = new FileOpenPicker();
openPicker.ViewMode = PickerViewMode.Thumbnail;
openPicker.SuggestedStartLocation = PickerLocationId.MusicLibrary;

StorageFile file = await openPicker.PickSingleFileAsync();
if (file != null)
   myMediaElement.Source = file; //error here
    //error here

It says that StorageFile cannot be converted to the System.Uri used to change the source of MediaElement. How do I make my file became a uri link? It seems that Uri("...") only accepts String of where the file location is.


You have to use a file stream along with SetSource. From How to play a local media file using a MediaElement:

var file = await openPicker.PickSingleFileAsync();
var stream = await file.OpenAsync(Windows.Storage.FileAccessMode.Read);
myMediaElement.SetSource(stream, file.ContentType);
