Silverlight Media Player (Fred Chateau) - 12/20/2007 8:58 PM PST RRS feed

  • Question

  • By: Fred Chateau


    Since I can't find a Silverlight forum I thought I'd ask this question here.

    The Silverlight SDK indicates that you can use an mms: prefix to the URL, as
    source for the Media Player. So far I have not been able to get this to
    work. I'm using the following property:
    Source="mms://domain.com/folder/filename.wmv".

    Does this look wrong to you?

    In general, you can't reference media in a different domain than the one 
    hosting the Silverlight player and I'd assume that applies when using an 
    mms:// uri. Is that possibly the issue here?

    Fred,

    When you say you can't get it to work, do you mean you can't get the project
    to build or you can't access the streaming media?

    If the latter, and everything is in the same domain, make sure that Windows
    Media Services on your server has the HTTP protocol enabled.

    Thanks, and sorry for not being more specific about the problem.

    How do I check which protocols are enabled on WMS (Windows Server 2003)?

    Jonathan,

    That was the problem...

    I didn't know where to set the IP addresses, but finally ran across it in
    Control Properties.

    You're very welcome!  I've seen this a lot lately because of the increased 
    use of Windows Media Player 11.
    
    Per KB 932756, "Windows Media Player 11 does not support the MMS protocol. 
    Therefore, if the HTTP protocol is not enabled on the Windows Media Services 
    4.1 [or 9] server, Windows Media Player 11 cannot connect to the server."
