In previous releases of Social Viewer Template, I have had success using an in-app playback method for play Youtube video content without needing to call the Youtube application.
To do this I used the Microsoft Media Platform from http://smf.codeplex.com/
Specifically, I modified the Video Item Template in the Reader page to create an instance of the <Core:SMFPlayer/> Control then add some logic in the code-behind to populate the player and play the video. The end result is really neat in-app
video playback. You can see this in my app:
Oddly, this is not working in the current alpha release. Whittling down my changes, I found the error occurs simply when creating an instance of the <Core:SMFPlayer/> Control
It is important to note that I have verified that the SMFPlayer control works in another 7.1 Phone project that I have coded from scratch.
I find I am unable to playback videos using the same method leveraged in a previous release of Social Viewer. When I load a view which has the SMFPlayer Control in it (In debug mode), I get an error stating that ServiceReferences.ClientConfig can not
be found. This is very strange, because I am not using any WCF services.
I don't expect too much help here, as this is definitely a fringe issue, but if anyone could shed some light on what might be going on it would be much appreciated. My hunch is that this has to do with updates to the way the layout is controlled.
