View Thread: Playing html5 video on windows phone 8 behind authentication issue.
  • User profile image


    I found a problem where windows phone 8 can't play html5 video behind a login. I have done a wireshark check, and it throws back a login page, so the player pops up a message saying it cannot play.

    It looks like IE10 mobile is pushing the video url to video app, but does not seemed to push auth cookie (or session key) with the video url.

    Can anyone confirm this? or any legit solution to this problem?

    FYI, I am using MVC4 to build the site. using a controller to read a video file and the controller is behind [authorized].
