    Windows Media Services 9 (2003 Server) and Vista+MediaPlayer

    Quick run down of what I've done at present. Install Windows Media Services published the server through ISA tested with Windows XP and it's Media Player works fine internally and externally Click on the website click opens up Mediaplayer and runs the video and sound perfectly. Problem when running vista this isn't the case click the link the browser asks to either open the file (asks for a program with which to do it) and also states that it can't understand a .part file would I like to try and run it anyway?
    Which of course it can't any idea why Vista has changed like this and also is there a way round it either from a server point of view or client preferably server as a lot of staff, pupils and parents use vista now?

    See attached screenshots of the errors.

    Right it will run the stream if you open the URL directly from media player technet had some info to add an embedded media player on the page as follows:




    Tried it and it works Firefox asks you to manually instal the plugin but it certainly does the job.

    Got a chance of creating quite a good video site now for very little cost or effort (Nearly nil)

    Thanks Wes,

    This shall come in handy for us also, as i will be creating some video tutorials for our staff to refer to. might do it this way now.

    you might also want to look at this media player webpart, instead of using the code

    You can also use this to point to external videos from "youtube" etc

    _______________________________

    Download Zip File attached

    - drop the MediaplayerWebpart.dll either into the SPS web application bin directory or into the GAC of your Sharepoint server (c:\windows\assembly)

    and then add the following line to the "" section of your Web.Config file.
    Please make sure that the line is added as one single line (no line breaks) - it does nasty things otherwise hehe




    from the top site go to Site Actions/Site Settings/Modify All Site Settings/Galleries/Web Parts
    use the "Upload" menu option to upload the Mediaplayer.webpart file.

    James.

    Well yes that'll certainly work within sharepoint but the other code will work in any website in most browsers.
