Silverlight 5 on Windows Phone 8? ( not Windows 8) RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi,

    I tried to run the Microsoft Smooth Streaming Player in my application. I downloaded the player from below url and followed the Read Me (Smooth Streaming Player-ReadMe.doc) document and created the player.


    When I run the app it shows, "To view this content, please install Microsoft Silverlight. How can I play the video. I tried the following thread, but unable to solve the issue.


    But, When I open the sample video url in the thread (http://channel9.msdn.com/ ) in Internet Explore browser in the Phone it works. But video didn't work in my HTML based app.

  • You can't run Silverlight 5 on a phone.

    As it says in that thread you linked.

    You can't run a regular Silverlight application on windows phone.

    This is because there is no plug-in.

    If you look at the list of Silverlight supported os and browsers:


    There is no windows phone on that list.

    Hope that helps.
