Using the Player Framework for a HTTP streaming client RRS feed

  • Question

  • Are there any examples for streaming TS files (HTTP) using the Player Framework?

    Also is there a list to what codec's it can natively decode?

    thanks

  • Hello Nathan,

    MPEG2 is not natively supported in Windows 8. The Media Center pack will add MPEG2 support for Microsoft applications but the components are not intended for use by 3rd parties.

    A list of supported codecs can be found here about half way through the article:

    I hope this helps,

    Just so i 100% understand, Does this mean there's no way for me to view an MPEG2 stream in my Metro app that's aimed at Windows RT?

  • Hello Nathan,

    The official answer is "no". There is no way for you to use Microsoft only components and support MPEG2 playback in your W8 store app. However, there is nothing stopping you from licensing your own MPEG2 codec and including it with your app package.

    I hope this helps,

    James

  • Another Microsoft media foundation FAIL. The list of things that don't work that used is so long that its embarrassing AND now MS thinks that this crapware is so good that they can put ads in my personal music playing back in the music app!!!!!!!! All the while charging the same as windows 7 for what is clearly an inferior product. Ya right. MS.get your heads out of your A$$ and fix this disaster

  • For what it's worth: Here's a sample for an MPEG1 decoder that might serve as a good starting point for building a Media Foundation plugin that you could ship with your app to support MPEG2. Or, maybe there's a 3rd party component someone else already built that could be purchased?
