I have an issue intercepting license request for playready smooth streaming content in windows 8 phone. I need to modify the license requests. I extended LicenseAcquirer class and assigned that to the media player. 

I was able to modify the license request on OnAcqureLicense method for non smoothstreaming contents with playready protection. But, for the smoothstreaming playready contents, it is not hitting the OnAcquireLicense method.

Anyone done this in windows 8 phone?  Any help would be greatly Appreciated.

I just ran a test and was able to confirm OnAcquireLicense was hit for my playready protected smooth streaming test stream. I've noticed that sometimes there is caching (at least I think it's related to caching) with the emulator and the custom LicenseAcquirer is not hit. Try restarting your emulator before running your test.

Hope this helps, Tim
