    There is a problem on Windows Phone 8 with playing Windows Media stream files. On Windows Phone 7 wmv streams play without any problems!
    Every time you are trying to play, the dialog appears:
    “Search for app in the Store?
    You need to install an app.......”

    The embedded media player should support that

    Here is an example:

    mms://media.sonoma.edu/pinball.wmv (try to open it from email, not in the browser)

    Although it's a native MS format. It's a shame that MS not supporting their native format that was previously supported on the lower OS (WP7)
