WMS Push Data Source

When the source of the content streamed by your publishing point is an encoder, the encoder administrator has the option of broadcasting directly from the encoding program or broadcasting through a Windows Media server. If the administrator chooses to broadcast through a Windows Media server, the encoder can initiate a connection to the Windows Media server, create a broadcast publishing point for its use, and send the stream over the network to the server. This series of events is commonly called an encoder push, because the encoder is pushing the stream to the server for broadcasting. In this situation, Windows Media Services uses the WMS Push Data Source plug-in to maintain the connection between the encoder and the server. This plug-in is able to accept incoming digital media data packets from an encoder.
