Hello everyone,


We have tried to create an app for windows 8 platform(tablet/phone). The flash content in the app is not playing. Infact no flash is supported inside the app. We are running a url inside an iframe in the app and the url's flash content is not getting displayed. We came to know that windows 8 apps dont support flash. The format of the flash videos cannot be easily changed as the youtube video urls are put into database and the video url's content is in flash by default.
we tried adding &html5=true at the end of youtube url, but it didnt work. So how do we go about solving the problem.... :)

As you discovered, flash is not supported inside Metro apps.
For youtube videos, you need to extract the video stream's url and pass it to a MediaPlayer control.
you can find sample code here: Link Removed
