Smooth Streaming White Paper

I know that many of you have been reading my blog for information about IIS Smooth Streaming. I’ve posted a series of posts on that topic, but sometimes blog posts can be difficult to aggregate. So if you’re looking for a single, one-stop-shop for information about Smooth Streaming, you can now download a white paper on Smooth Streaming that unifies all that information I’ve been posting in a single doc:

The white paper is available in Word, PDF and XPS formats.

    Please release a command line LIVE encoder that works like WMCmd.vbs and supports smooth streaming!

  3. Angelo says:

    Was wondering if live smooth streaming can support script streams (like WM Encoder 9) to broadcast live informations directly to clients.

    Keep up the good work!

  4. @Philipp:
    Expression Encoder will likely include support for live Smooth Streaming at some point in the future.

    @Angelo:
    Yes, there are provisions in the Smooth Streaming file & manifest format specification that allow marker and script command insertion.

    Great Job with your blog!

    I’m wondering, will smooth streaming support wmv9?

    • VC-1 Main Profile, you mean? No, only Advanced Profile, as it requires transport independence, sequence headers with entry points, closed GOPs, etc – all features only available in AP.
