Plug-ins and properties are used at both the
server and publishing
point levels to control the operation and
configuration of Windows Media Services. Each plug-in and property
has its own unique function that affects the operation of the
Windows Media server. Many plug-ins and properties regulate the
core functionality of the server, and improper settings can affect
the ability of the server to stream content or the ability of
clients to access content. Plug-ins and
properties are categorized into groups in order to identify their
function on the server.
The available properties and plug-ins differ
depending on which version of Windows Server 2003 you are running.
For a complete list of the features available in each version of
Windows Media Services, see Comparing versions
of Windows Media Services.
