  • Hello Dave,

    As you alluded to previously this is a known issue and I was told that it would be fixed in 8.1. If you find that the issue is still occurring on 8.1 please let me know and I will investigate further. Keep in mind that it might take some time for the cache to be cleaned out. Don't expect it to be deleted right away. I think we flush the cache every 30 days or so.

    I hope this helps,

    James

  • Hi Dave,

    The new Windows.Web.HttpClient allows a lot of control over caching, but I'm not sure offhand how MediaElement works and what it exposes. Take a look at this, and if you can't figure it out let me know and I'll check it out next week.

  • Hello Dave,

    I'm not sure what cache issue you are talking about. Are you asking if we have a "no cache" setting for live streams? Are you using the SSME or the MediaElement directly?

    Thanks,

    James

  • Hi James,

    I maked a demo project here: http://sdrv.ms/12dk0wO

    i'm settings the source of the media element directly. Listen for some hours to the stream and close the app.

    Then when looking here: C:\Users\Dave\AppData\Local\Packages\9b6ea50f-84cb-40d3-bd1d-ce1d99ca5a38_tbz3402trp7yy\AC\INetCache\DMA80V55 there are a lot of .dat files that getting pretty big. At it looks if they never get deleted.
