Voip capability inside a Windows Phone 8.1 runtime App

    Question

  • Hi everybody, I'm currently planning to develop a WP 8.1 runtime app with Voip capabilities, I read MSDN documentations and there's a thing that is unclear to me:

    Is it possible to write a Windows Phone 8.1 runtime app (NOT SILVERLIGHT!) with Voip capabilities or I am obliged to choose Silverlight framework version?

    Thanks in advance for the clarification.

    NOTE: If I ask for code, please provide something that I can drop directly into a project and run (including XAML), or an actual application project. I'm trying to help a lot of people, so I don't have time to figure out weird snippets with undefined objects and unknown namespaces.

  • Thank you for the answer, I tried the sample you linked me but it doesn't solve my problem.

    My problem is slightly different.

    I need to do VOIP audio streaming, coding and decoding inside my app even when the app is in the background. Hence I wanted to know if I can do VOIP with a Windows phone 8.1 runtime app.

    Please can you clarify for me this question?

    Thanks in advance for the help.

  • Your app simply isn't going to run in the background, unless you use background tasks, and then your app will need to be brought to the foreground to execute. It sounds like you're trying to recreate Skype, and I don't think that you're going to be able to do that without having access to restricted APIs.
