MediaStreamSource.CloseMedia Method

The MediaElement can call this method when going through normal shutdown or as a result of an error. This lets the developer perform any needed cleanup of the MediaStreamSource.

Namespace:  System.Windows.Media
Assembly:  System.Windows (in System.Windows.dll)

protected abstract void CloseMedia()

Removing a MediaElement from the UI tree will trigger a state transition to Closed. However, the CloseMedia method is not guaranteed to be called in this case. To ensure CloseMedia is called, set the MediaElement.Source property to null prior to detaching it from the UI tree.
