Windows Media Server Not streaming media

Post by UmV2ZXJlbm » Wed, 02 Mar 2005 00:33:02


Help please...(smile).

I'm ready to pull my hair out here. I've configured a stream to be accessed
from a website, using the mms://configuration.

This works fine within my network, but it can not be properly accessed
outside of my network.

When we view it from the office PC's it works great. When we call out to
ask a user to test it, the receive the page OK, but the media player says
"locating media...connecting to media...ready", and that's it.

The media stream does not work.

What are doing wrong here.

Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Do you happen to have a firewall at your network
perimeter? If yes, you most probably will need to open
some ports on the firewall.

For the list of ports, please check the "Configuring
firewalls for unicast streaming" section of the WIndows
Media Services Help documentation.

Thx,
Ravi

I have been having the same problem. I don't have my firewall turned on. Does
anyone know where the problem might be coming from?

If you are using Media Server 9, and the "announcement" or "publish" file
option, then your ASX file was built using the server name, ie:

mms://server_01/publishpoint/file.wmv

You need to change the ASX file to read:
mms://your.domain.com/publishpoint/file.wmv

Thanks,
Bill

You are doing one of the following most likely:

1.) You aren't specifying the external name of the server that internet
users would type to get to your domain in the ASX file.
2.) You don't have ports 1755, and 554, and 80 open.
3.) If you've only opened port 1755 this will not work for newer players,
as WMP 9+ does not use MMS. Only the older players do. The newer players if
they see MMS, will roll over to the RTSP protocol first (port 554), and if
that fails will try HTTP (port 80).

Thanks.
