    Hi there,

    The Smooth Streaming Client SDK for Windows 8.1 at https://visualstudiogallery.msdn.microsoft.com/0170c67c-c183-4fee-8dd4-c2b44d710d40 specifies "Offline playback scenarios via Downloader Plugin*". I have been searching the web to find info on how to download content for offline playback scenarios using the Downloader Plugin, but can't find nothing, so is there any samples, API docs or blogs out there showing you how to do this?

    Thanks in advance.

    Hi there, 

    just curious about that what Downloader plugin you are using? 

    based on the demo http://blogs.iis.net/cenkd/archive/2012/08/09/how-to-build-a-smooth-streaming-windows-8-javascript-application-with-advanced-features.aspx , after the registration, you could play video content once you set the URL or a local file. so I'm guessing you could add the downloaded video into your project for playback..

    //plugins.registerSchemeHandler("Microsoft.Media.AdaptiveStreaming.SmoothSchemeHandler", "ms-sstr:", property);

    // This is optional for advanced scenarios like offline playback via Downloader plugin interface. Register Smooth Streaming Scheme handler and pass the propertyset. ms-sstr://*.ism/manifest URI resources will be resolved by Scheme-handler.

    // Smooth Streaming Registration ends

    Regards,

    Jenny

    Hi Jenny,

    So my question is more around seeing API documentation, samples or blogs using XAML/C# in creating and using the Downloader plugin to actual download the content and then playback either online or offline. If offline, then it is assumed you already have the license if is Playready protected video.

    Regards,

    Alternatively, if anyone knows how to download content and then play it back offline via the PlayerFramework then that would be good too as I can't find any examples of this in the Samples for v2.0. See https://playerframework.codeplex.com/releases/view/121773.

    Thanks,
