Windows 7: Enable Streaming in Server 2008 R2, wip

Enable Streaming in Server 2008 R2, wip

I am working on enabling the stream function on my server, so far I have got the Windows Media Player Network Sharing Service running and am trying to work out what is preventing the streaming menu from showing in WMP 12, I suspect a registry value somewhere. If anyone wants to help then thanks.

edit: I know I am only a 1 poster so far but I thought this would be the best place to come to asking for aid

Are you wanting to stream stuff in media player from other places or stream from your server to clients?

Windows Media Services is specifically used for streaming from the server to other clients. Sorry if i misunderstood your post.

Have you been able to enable Media Player streaming on Server 2008 R2? I'm currently facing the same problem, but haven't even been able to install the Windows Media Network Sharing Service.
Any hints on how to do that and if you solved the issue how to finally enable streaming?

Thanks !

For setting up streaming services, I recommend using Windows Media Services 2008, which is a free add-on for Windows Server 2008 systems. After installing this add-on, you’ll have the ability to set up publishing points and host streams of playlists or single files. What I wanted to point out is one of the common gotchas with Silverlight and streaming in the current versions.
