JW Player for Silverlight not playing http live streams with port number on the URL


JW Player for Silverlight plays http live streams fine except the ones with the port number on the URL.

See this example i've made:

Are you guys aware of this bug? If yes, do you plan to fix it?

I've also found another bug while testing JW Player for Silverlight with http live streams... if you click pause the pause icon will not switch to the play icon, the loading animation will appear continuously and you will not be able to play the stream again, you will have to refresh the page for that.

Hope to hear some feedback from you guys...

Hmm, we were not aware of this issue. We have stopped development on the WMV player though, instead putting all resources into our Flash/HTML5 player.

A good player to check out instead for Silverlight is the Microsoft Media Framework:

JW Player

Oh... didn't knew that. I really needed a player that supports both http stream and mms streams. I will check your suggestion.
