Download operation restarts Universal App Windows phone 8.1, Windows 8.1 RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi there,

    I am developing a universal app where i need to download a video file from the server. In windows phone 8.1 whenever lock screen appears or app goes to background while downloading the video file from the server, the downloading restarts (ex: if 2 MB is downloaded before lock screen appears then it will start from the zero after the lock screen). The same code works perfectly on windows 8.1 but in windows phone 8.1 it will starts giving trouble.

    I am using the BackgroundDownloader to download the file.

    Is there anybody else who got the same problem?

    Any help very much appreciated.

  • Can you give me sample code for this? I'll test it here.

    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.

  • Hi Matt,

    Here is the link to download my project.

    Please consider 2Mbps internet speed.

    here i am downloading a large Zip file(50 MB) as well as few images simultaneously.

    Bug can be found only in release mode.
