Use your server to broadcast a stream published by Windows Media Encoder

This quick start demonstrates how to publish a broadcast from a computer running Windows Media Encoder through a Windows Media server, also known as push distribution. This technique is ideal for broadcasting company meetings or live presentations. For this task, you must have a separate computer running Windows Media Encoder that has a sound card or video capture card and the appropriate input devices. Also, be sure that the person operating the encoder has administrator rights and privileges for the Windows Media server and can connect to Windows Media Services.

  1. Prepare Windows Media Services to receive content from the encoder by doing the following:
  2. Configure the encoder to create a new publishing point on your server by choosing the appropriate broadcast method.
  3. You need to supply the following information to the encoder to enable it to create a publishing point successfully:

Once Windows Media Encoder creates a broadcast publishing point on the Windows Media server and begins streaming live content to it, clients can connect to the broadcast by using the publishing point URL or an announcement file.
