Hi,
How can I use Player Framework for Windows Phone 8 and play audio in the background? It does not seem to support the same properties for WP8 that it does for Windows 8 i.e. AudioCategory="BackgroundCapableMedia"

Thanks,

Hello, background audio is considerably different on WP vs. Win8 and the AudioCategory property is not part of the WP MediaElement control (which is what the player framework uses internally). Here's an article that may help to learn more about how background audio works on the phone.
