Windows Media Services 2008 and Media Player Web Part


My team and I have been playing with Windows 2008 Server RTM and have been playing with the downloadable feature from Microsoft which is Windows Media Services 2008.

It’s a very easy program to download and we are going to be using it to stream videos made in our school and also sound tracks made by our podcasting team and music department.

Back in July I published Steve Sofian Media Player web part for him as his blog was down and would like to thank him again for his work.

I just added the Media Player Web Part to a site and in the source field for the video location added the media streaming URL something which is like mms://mediaserver.domain/video100

It worked fine.
