Playback 480p video on Windows Phone 7

Dec 14, 2012 at 2:13 AM


Our team is developing a WP7 and WP8 app using SMFPlayer v2.7 and we have prepared a set of 480p smooth streaming content for testing. 

All content can be playback on WP8 perfectly. However some of the content will display a grey/rainbow color screen on WP7. 

Is the problem due to

  1. hardware limitation
  2. SMFPlayer framework limitation
  3. unsupported smooth streaming content profile (VC-1, 480p, 1.5Mbps/1Mbps/800kbps bitrates)
