I have the SMF Player in one of the pages in my application.

The code that i use in the XAML is

 

<Core:SMFPlayer Name="tvPlayer"
                CaptionsVisibility="Disabled"
                AutoPlay="True">

           <Core:SMFPlayer.Playlist>
                <Media:PlaylistItem 
                DeliveryMethod="AdaptiveStreaming"
                MediaSource="http://Stream Url"/>

            </Core:SMFPlayer.Playlist>
 </Core:SMFPlayer>

 

So when the page is loaded then the player will stream the content from the url automatically since the AutoStart is set to true.

Now when i am on the player screen and i press home button and launch another application and then come back to this page by hitting the back button, the content is not streamed. I expected that since the page is loaded the streaming should also start by referring to the auto start property.

Where did i go wrong and what should i do to get this to work ?
