Start the encoder, and then configure it to broadcast the
encoded stream to your Windows Media server. During the encoder
session configuration wizard, the following information is
The name of the Windows Media server. This can be an
alias, a fully qualified domain name, or an IP address.
The name of the publishing point. This is the name of
the publishing point on your server through which the encoded
stream will be broadcast. This publishing point can already exist
on the Windows Media server or it can be created by the encoder
during the configuration process.
Whether to remove the publishing point when the broadcast
has ended. This prevents older publishing points that are no
longer needed from accumulating on your Windows Media server.
On the Windows Media server, in the console tree, click the
server that you want to use for this stream.
In the details pane, click the Properties tab.
In Category, click Control protocol.
Enable the WMS HTTP Server Control Protocol plug-in. The
encoder must use the HTTP protocol to send the encoded stream to
To push content from an encoder to Windows Media
Services, you must use Windows Media Encoder or an encoder based on
the Windows Media Encoder SDK.
A publishing point that is streaming content
pushed from an encoder can be managed from the Windows Media
Services snap-in or Windows Media Services Administrator for the
Web. The same properties and plug-ins can be configured from either
interface, including authentication and authorization properties,
limits, and announcements.
When the WMS Publishing Points ACL Authorization
plug-in is enabled, you must grant certain permissions at the
server level and publishing point level for the encoder
administrator to be able to create a new publishing point on your
server. You must configure the plug-in to grant the user or group
both write and create permissions. For more information about the
WMS Publishing Points ACL Authorization plug-in and server and
publishing point permissions, see WMS
Publishing Points ACL Authorization - general properties.
