    General discussion

  • Will MediaElement be able to accept non-file streaming sources in 2.0 (i.e. live streaming such as video conference)?

  • swildermuth,

    I hope you will be able to enlighten me with this:

    - I have built an application in Silverlight 1.1.

    - I am currently playing wmv and mp3's from a local folder.

    I am using Windows Media Encoder to broadcast a stream from my microphone.

    The stream plays well anywhere in the world on Windows Media Player, Winamp or VLC player.

    I cannot get it to work on the local Silverlight project nor any other stream that works fine on WMP.

    Is there anything different in the code that I have to do than:

    MyPlayer.SetSource = new Uri("mms://here is my uri",UriKind.Relative);


    Thank you for your time.

  • The problem is that SIlverlight requires a http/https stream and using a mms stream won't work.  Silverlight attempts to navigate to a mms stream and ask it for a http/https stream but if its streaming using the standard mms protocol it wont work.  I don't know if Encoder will allow you to expose a non-mms stream.
