    Serving media content using IIS

    Anyone have experience of serving media using IIS? If so, what do you think?

    Serving Media Content : The Official Microsoft IIS Site

    The idea is that we convert our DVD collection to a format which we can stream through this.

    Alternatively I was thinking of using something like phpmotion.

    I gave this a go a while back and had it all integrated in sharepoint using MMS.

    But to be honest the staff prefer to simple go to the video share on the network to play them.

    With Wireless N these days there are no bandwidth issues that I have come across.

    We use imtoo dvd ripper to get the videos in WMV format, just keep the bitrate down and it works really well.

    we had problems getting phpmotion to work right and so ended up with vshare running on an ubuntu box and it's working really well for us so far

    Personally, I'd do as danbuntu has - use a linux virtual machine to do it. Maybe even look at MediaCore.

    Also, remember that copying DVDs, even if you are only using it internally, is against copyright law without authorisation from the copyright holder for each DVD. It isn't covered by any of the 'blanket' style licenses out there.
