What kinds of problems? Are you playing background audio?

I want to play ".m3u8" file at background. I do that for windows phone 8. But unable to do that for windows phone silverlight 8.1. Is there any sample for silverlight 8.1 or possibility to get later?

IIRC, Microsoft doesn't support background audio for Silverlight 8.1 apps; they turned that off when they added WinRT background audio for 8.1. There is code for WinRT background audio, but it has a slow memory leak (I'm pretty sure the leak is in Microsoft's code). 512MB phones will run out of memory in the background process after a while and will at least glitch the sound when the phonesm code restarts the audio playback. More and more code was added to make handling the out-of-memory problems more reliable, but I never did get it so it could always restart playback. Anyhow, the best solution is probably either to write a native/C++ background audio player for 8.1 (hopefully avoiding the memory leak) or to build for WP8 Silverlight.
