Streaming PlayList with HTTP protocol

Postby filsdemaman » Thu Apr 14, 2011 2:12 pm


I don't know where I missed or what I have to change and modify with my HTTP protocol configuration on IIS 7.0?
When I play my Recorded Media files with "http://localhost:80/crossgstv"
[this folder has 5 files of movie]
I get this:

localhost - /crossgstv/


[To Parent Directory]

Why I cannot play the folder in one click on the link "http://localhost/crossgstv? Why I have to click one after another to play? So I don't know why the link won't open and start my media files immediateley? Usually, in my understanding, when I type on my IE browser the link below
my video pages should open and start automatically as a playinglist without clicking to my files. Anyone can help me?

(Note: with ---->> ums://TCP:localhost:5119/playlist/crossgstv ====>> I don't have any problem. UMP is working well for the plylist, only HTTP:// -------> I have problems)

Did you install UHttpProxy on your IIS?

Read our FAQ page about possible UHttpProxy installation issues.

Thank admin.

Yes, I installed UHttpProxy on my IIS. I also read your FAQ how to install UHttpProxy. Your instruction is to download UHttpProxy and then put it under C:\ like this C:\inetpub\wwwroot\UHttpProxy\UHttpProxy.dll and then named it UHTTPProxy. After naming this folder, i then pointed my HTTP protocole to my directory virtual folder above. As I mentioned in my email above, when I type [http://localhost/crossgstv] on IE browser to play my virtual folder, I get

I spent entirely yesterday and today to read again your FAQ and try to RESET again my setting and see what I was wrong? But I still get files opening on my screen, not the UMedia player.

I ALSO tried playing like this [http://localhost/playlist/crossgstv] but it doesn't working too. I need helps. Could you help me please?

That's not how you play via HTTP. You need to specify HTTP protocol in Streaming Media Player.

Hi admin.

Thanks for your reply. I got it. Now the playlist is working, but another problem is arising. External users cannot connect to my Media Server computer. I suppose there is a problem of "firewall" which blocks all incoming connections (??). Actually, the media server is behind a router. My Internet and Media Server machine have different IP address. Yes, I have read your FAQ and also the Media Server's instructions for the configuration "[If all TCP traffic is block, the only choice is to connect via HTTP(s). Once the client computer can reach the server computer, you should be able to stream the test]".

I try to get out from the issue, but nothing is found. From there, on my web site, I created a text link like your DEMOS [Unreal ActivEX Control] to play the UMedia Player. I want when I click on the link text, the player is started automatically. Locally is working fine. Nothing to say about this, but external client connection is still always a big issue for me. I verify my ports with the router. Now I have port forwarding {80, 443, 5119 and 8080} opening. Despite these ports are opened, External Users still cannot play.

If clients connect via HTTP(s) with my Internet IP address with port [80], clients get this: "Oops! this page appears broken. DNS server cannot be found! SAME THING WITH MY MEDIA SERVER IP ADDRESS. SAME THING WITH CLIENT PLAYING WITH THE TEXT LINK ON MY WEB PAGE. So What is missing? And what can I do? ANY IDEA TO HELP ME, PLSE?

If DNS doesn't work it's because your domain is not resolving to the WAN IP. But if they put in the IP #s it should work is the way I look at it. If your .com, .net, etc domain name is not updated (if dynamic) they will get an error like that I expect.
