Hi,

I noticed, that Smooth Streaming does not work well when I use PlayTo XBox (even PlayTo Media Player on the local machine), because it seems that everytime the stream tries to find out the right bitrate, the Player starts buffering.

Should Smooth Streaming/PlayTo work, or is this not supported right now?

Best regards

Hi Thomas, the smooth streaming SDK does support PlayTo. Have you tried a few different streams (for example the Big Buck Bunny sample stream below)? I'm wondering if the issue could be somehow related to encoding (just guessing).
