VS 2013 Update 4 breaks adaptive streaming

Topics: Windows 8 Xaml

Hi there,

Today I updated to VS 2013 Update 4. After it was complete, I rebooted and loaded up my project. Upon opening a streaming resource, now the application terminates without any error message or other indication.

My XAML is fairly simple, pretty much straight out of the documentation. I've included it below for your amusement.

I notice that if I take out the "<adapt:AdaptivePlugin />" line, the video doesn't play, but the app no longer quits to the desktop. I wrapped the method in a try..catch, but it never gets hit, so I can't really see what's going on.

Is this a known problem, or do you have any advice how to fix the issue?

<mmppf:MediaPlayer
                Source="{Binding CurrentEvent.VideoStreamURL}" 
                PositionChanged="onPositionChanged"
                PlayerStateChanged="onVideoPlayerStateChanged"
                IsCaptionSelectionVisible="True"
                MediaFailed="onVideoFailed"
                >
                <mmppf:MediaPlayer.Plugins>
                    <adapt:AdaptivePlugin />
                    <ttmlcs:TTMLCaptionSettingsPlugin />
                </mmppf:MediaPlayer.Plugins>
            </mmppf:MediaPlayer>

I've verified that the same problem also occurs using WinJS with Visual Studio 2013 update 4 - https://playerframework.codeplex.com/discussions/572136

Any advice how to fix this issue?

Thanks,

Getting the same issue after upgrading to Update 4.

Error: "Requested Windows Runtime type 'Microsoft.Media.AdaptiveStreaming.AdaptiveSourceManager' is not registered."

I thought this may be an issue with XAML so I tried creating the media player and adaptive plugin in C#, but no dice :(

We had also problems with Update 4, causing TypeLoadExceptions for no reason.

We 'solved' it by re-installing Visual Studio 2013 and then update to Update 3.

(Don't forget to rebuild the project after)

I have exactly the same issue, did someone find a fix?

I have error : "Element not found , Windows.Graphics.Display:GetForCurrentView must be called on a thread that is associated with a CoreWindows" on my adaptiveplugin part.

This was a bug introduced in VS2013 Update 4. I've confirmed it is now fixed in VS2013 Update 5.
