Property Value

Type: System..::.Boolean
Returns Boolean.


If an application tries to play multi-resolution encoded video on a device that doesn’t support it, playback will fail with an error at the point when the bitrate of the stream changes. The application will receive a generic error and will not be able to respond appropriately. There will be an interruption in video playback and it could appear that the application is broken. Smooth streaming applications must check this property before requesting multi-resolution encoded video.
