MMS Multicast via Windows Media Player

Postby maxseamus » Wed Dec 08, 2010 3:14 pm

Hello all,

I had a question about Multicast using Windows Media Player. I noticed that when I connect to our live stream, it will only connect via unicast. The only way I can get a multicast connection is by using the Streaming Media Player. We would prefer to use Windows Media Player to play some live content since it's already installed for everyone. I have been pouring through this site and the documentation and I feel like I'm missing something. If I disable unicast on the live stream then I cannot connect via Windows Media. Can anyone provide assistance?

Thank you

Unfortunately, this is not possible.
You can only view multicast streams with our player/browser plugin.

Thank you for the quick reply. I knew I wasn't going crazy (well at least not over this).
