Smooth streaming (with PlayReady) Sample for XAML

With the Preview 6 (9/22/12) Release their were published as well a new sample app.

I've tried to run the Smooth Streaming (with PlayReady) sample app. But the Video is not streaming.

Did this sample ever work?

What can be the Problem with that? The other two sample apps work great...

thanks for any help.

Dave, the sample should work, here a couple things to check:

1) If you have a 64 bit of Windows installed, the build config must also be set for x64 (or x86 for 32-bit Windows). Note: there's also a project property called "Prefer 32-bit". This also needs to be unchecked on 64 bit Windows. Be aware: build config can be set differently for debug vs. release mode.

2) You cannot run over remote desktop. Content Protection prohibits this.

Hey tim

thanks for the help. Point 1 is set correctly and Point 2 is also ok. I am not running it via remote Desktop.
