    Hi there,

    I'm using Windows Media Service on Windows Server 2003 R2 for streaming video.
    I've implemented video control by using HTML+Time as below;

    <!DOCTYPE HTML PUBLIC "-//W3C//DTD HTML 4.01 Transitional//EN">
    <html xmlns:v="urn:schemas-microsoft-com:vml"
    <style>.time {behavior: url(#default#TIME2);} v\:* { behavior:
    url(#default#VML); }</style>
    <?import namespace="t" implementation="#default#time2">
    <t:video begin="0.0" end="0.0" src="mms://streaming.host/foo.wmv" />

    I've ensured that above codes works fine for IE7 on WinXP as client, but it
    doesn't work(no video is shown) for IE7 on Vista.

    I wonder is the section <t:video ... src="mms://..." /> not supported on
    Vista. Could someone tell me is it any way to work that code on Vista?

    Thanks in advance.

  2. The mms protocol itself is no longer available in WMP11 for streaming,
    but it's still available as a rollover designation - WMP will try RTSP
    and/or HTTP streaming if it sees that, so make sure you have at least
    HTTP streaming setup on your publishing points.

    Out of interest - why such a curious choice of technology ?

    I'm pretty sure Silverlight is much more lilkely to remain well
    supported (it's cross browser - and cross-platform now Mono project's
    Moonlight is up). HTML+TIME was always very marginal and very
    definitely IE only.

    Cheers - Neil

    Hi Neil,

    Thank you for replying.
    I've set my streaming server to allow HTTP streaming and try again, but
    anything is getting better. I also have ensured that streaming works fine
    with WMP11 via RTSP and HTTP on Vista.

    So that, I guess that is not only streaming issue but supporting streaming
    for HTML+Time issue on Vista(+IE7).
    Totally should I understand HTML+Time (+streaming) is no more supportted
    officially on Vista?
    I have to maintein legacy system which are built by using these
    technologies, but it means I can't migrate that system for vista, right?
    Could you please advise again.

    Thanks in advance.
