Hi,

I Want to reproduce video in OGV format. Is it posible todo in the XAML media player?

Thanks.

OGV is not supported by Windows 8 or Windows Phone so unfortunately there is no easy way to make this work (the player framework relies on the platform's capabilities).

Note: I say "easy" because technically it is possible to create your own MediaStreamSource (WP8) or Media Foundation Extension (Win8) to support this but this is not trivial and requires intimate knowledge of the format.
