not sure what kind of testing you are referrign to? But If its just a
playback, I can play it on VLC media player. I can test video info using
media info / ffmpeg. Ofcourse I have come to know that Standard Silverlight
player is not capable of playing EAC3+H.264 smoothstreams (may be I am
wrong) But I am counting on someone else for development of that part.

But really appreciate your guidance on this part. If I am successful in
this, I will update you
