If you have ever tried to play with HLS (HTTP Live Streaming) with Windows Phone 8, you probably used the Player Framework with a MediaStreamSource (like Windows Phone Streaming Media).

With the new Windows 10 APIs, all that stuff become useless ! The MediaElement control of Universal Windows Platform app can handle that natively :) HLS or DASH (Dynamic Adaptive Streaming over HTTP) it’s up to you and it is very easy to use :

MediaElement mediaElement = new MediaElement();

// The source is an uri like :
// http://mydomain.com/toto/playlist.m3u8
var result = await AdaptiveMediaSource.CreateFromUriAsync(source);
if (result.Status == AdaptiveMediaSourceCreationStatus.Success)
    var astream = result.MediaSource;

Have fun :D
