Videos not loading on Windows Phone but do load on Windows 8

I have an app (ERBoH) built for both Windows Phone and Windows 8. The videos are not loading on the Windows Phone version (on my Windows Phone 7.8 device at least) - but do load on the Windows 8 version.

I have updated the toolkit to 1.10. I'm not sure when exactly the videos stopped playing but it was before I updated to 1.10.

Some example YouTube IDs:


When trying to play the videos on Windows Phone the screen darkens but nothing plays - not error messages are thrown.

Any help would be appreciated.

Just tested it using the sample app and this view:

On my PC in the emulator (WP8, 720p) it is working... Maybe the video is blocked for your country / on your WP? You have to debug it on your PC...

(btw. I like "Epic Rap Battles of History" :-))

I just rebooted my phone and it seems to work now. Strange.

I will keep an eye on it and report back if it happens again.

Thanks for your efforts and nice to hear you're a Epic Rap Battles fan - I hope you like the app.

Whats the name of the app(s)?

It's ERBoH (for both WP and Win8).

I had originally called it Epic Rap Battles of History, but Maker Studios (the guys who own Epic Rap Battles) filled a copyright claim against the name.

And this way it's ok? It's still their content...
