Video flickering in Windows 8 simulator

Ever experienced this before? Your video gets stuck while running a video streaming Windows 8 App in Simulator? Well, I myself experienced it last week, while working on a video streaming app. I usually deploy the app to a simulator for testing purpose simply because I can easily switch between visual studio and the app itself, for debugging purpose. Strangely, I experienced this flickering kinda thing when deployed the app in simulator. I think that’s because we are running the app in a virtual machine that uses another desktop session.

You don’t have to try too hard to fix it. Deploy it directly to local machine or to the device itself. Done!

Hope this helps.
