When doing background playback, if the buffering takes too long, the application gets suspended, and the video is not played. Any way to avoid that?

Interesting. You might try with just a vanilla MediaElement and confirm it happens there too. If so, I'd post this on the MSDN forums so the right folks can take a look and advise. The player framework uses the MediaElement under the hood but if you find a workaround we may be able to bake it into the player framework. Please let us know what you find.
