Hey guys,

We just updated our project to 8.1. Updated the Smooth Streaming client to 8.1 beta from here ( and PF 1.3 beta 2.

As soon as we try to play a video we get a file not found exception, no stack trace, symbols are of no hope - it's deep down somewhere :)

A first chance exception of type 'System.IO.FileNotFoundException' occurred in Microsoft.AdaptiveStreaming.winmd

Any pointers?

If I'm not mistaken, this is a known issue with Visual Studio and Win8.1 preview. For now, you should be able to run in Release mode to workaround this.

Hey Tim,

Apologies I did see that in another thread and it was successful.

Thanks again,
