Is it the native player which is not allowing you to play the video ?
Till now I have researched and experienced that native player doesnt receive browser cookies and hence fails to authenticate with SharePoint. Still as a recommendation I would like you to try this

I don't have the setting "show streaming music in my collection".  I'm on Window 8.  not 8.1.

I figured out a workaround. I compress the audio to a .zip. The phone knows to download a .zip,  which then decompresses and plays automatically after decompression.
