I am trying to play a DRMed mp3 audio smooth stream using player framework player, for first few secs(10 to 15secs) it plays well. after sometime player UI hangs and it is not allowing me to do any operations on player UI. but the same code works well for videos.

any idea why it hangs like that?

NB, is this an audio-only smooth stream? I believe that you need to have a fake video track in the stream for it to work. Please check on this to make sure.

Also, you might try creating a quick test app using just the SmoothStreamingMediaElement to see if it has the same issue. If so, this would rule out the player framework and be an issue for the smooth streaming team. Let me know if you need help trying this.
