Hi All
I would like to display a list of youtube videos inside our Windows 8 Metro App.
I have made use of the youtube api's to fetch the json feed.
This feed is parsed and I have fetched the video title, description etc.
I also got the RTSP links and the swf player link from inside the :link element of the feed.
I would like to know how to play the fetched videos from inside the Windows 8 Metro App or a Windows Phone App using the MediaPlayer control.
The MediaPlayer control is not able to play youtube video streamed via rtsp.
Its able to play a video hosted in a file server
eg: http://localhost/myvideo.mp4 is playing but the below video is not playing
Please let me know how I can play high quality youtube videos without using browser control.

I have to second this question/request.  Would be great to play the high quality videos directly.

@vic_msn For now, i'm having to use to retrieve the .mp4 file so the player can use that.  This works for me as a temporary solution.
