Streaming RTSP/M3U8 using Player Framwork RRS feed

  • Question

  • I'm trying to stream either an RTSP or M3U8 audio stream to a Windows 8 C# app but am having difficulty in doing so.

    Currently, I have the app set up to use the Player Framework and Smooth Streaming.

    <Grid Background="{StaticResource ApplicationPageBackgroundThemeBrush}">
        <mmppf:MediaPlayer Source="http://ms1.clickhere2.com/live/883jia/playlist.m3u8">
                <adaptive:AdaptivePlugin />

    The Source can also be "rtsp://ms1.clickhere2.com/live/883jia" or "http://ms1.clickhere2.com/live/883jia/chunklist.m3u8".

    When run, I am told that "The video failed to play".

    Any ideas how I can stream? Thanks.

  • Hello,

    Smooth Streaming format is very different from RTSP. We do support the Microsoft custom implementation of RTSP natively using the MediaElement. Keep in mind that RTSP is a very extensible standard and has been highly customized by Microsoft for our Windows Media Server 9 implementation.

    I hope this helps,
