is it possible to play smooth streaming content directly from the WP8 browser without forcing the user to download a player App?

We don't have a windows phone to verify, so I've searched a bit on this topic and it appears that silverlight doesn't run on the phone browser and the phone media player doesn't natively support smooth streaming. Is this correct?

The short answer is no. You cannot play smooth streaming without an app or from a web page using the Silverlight plugin (which is not supported on WP). Sorry.

thanks for the quick reply.
is there a way to deliver live video and audio content to WP8 without installing anything on the device?
