Reducing Player XAP size?

Jul 22, 2011 at 2:47 AM

Anyone have any tips on reducing their player XAP size? Ours is around 800KB, which seems like it could be a little large; wondering if this can be considered normal as far as a rough benchmark for a minimal MMPPF player...

I've been wondering this too.  I think the only option is to grab the source code, and strip out things yourself.

For instance, you can shrink the xap by 119K by removing Microsoft.SilverlightMediaFramework.Core.dll's reference to System.Xml.Serialization.dll.  It's only used by the OfflineStorageManager, inside ReadSerializedItemFromFile & SerializeItemToFile.
