Release Notes

This zip file contains source code for sample WP7, WP8, desktop Silverlight, and Windows 8.1 applications and the binaries needed to play HLS streams. In addition to M3U8/M3U playlists, raw AAC, MP3, and TS streams should now play. PLS playlists are partially supported (only the first entry will play).

See the Documentation for more details.

  • SamplePlayer.WP7 sometimes does not start playing when it should.


  • AES-128 encrypted streams are much more reliable.

Reviews for this release

Excellent project and great people behind it. I managed to use phone, rt and silverlight players successfully. Had some minor troubles configuring but contributors were really helpful and removed all obstacles I faced.

Hello I have to rectify, I have tried with Windows 8/Rt once compiled and posted my App and your Player HLS works fantastic! Thank you for your work.
