? How to - streaming audio and video using windows media... ?

P: n/a
Using VS 2003, VB.NET and/or ASP.NET 2.0,

BACKGROUND
I have a window forms based application that contains a TreeView control and
a WebBroswer (AxSHDocVw.AxWebBrowser) control. The TreeView is populated with
nodes that when clicked play an audio clip from specified local or web URL
and navigate the browser control to a specified local or web URL. Audio
playback uses as hidden media player object AxWMPLib.AxWindowsMediaPlayer).
PROBLEM
My client now wants the application moved from a windows based app, to a web
app. My plan is to use redevelop the app in ASP.NET 2.0.

The biggest question I have is - how do I stream audio and/or video files
from my ASP server to the client? Will I need special software and/or
configurations on the server to allow streaming media?

Can someone point me to some web resources on this topic or better yet post
some example code?

Thanks for any thoughts?

There was no way for you to know it (except maybe by browsing through
some of the previous questions before posting yours - always a
recommended practice), but this is a classic asp newsgroup. ASP.Net is
a different technology from classic ASP. While you may be lucky enough
to find a dotnet-savvy person here who can answer your question, you
can eliminate the luck factor by posting your question to a newsgroup
where the dotnet-savvy people hang out. I suggest
microsoft.public.dotnet.framework.aspnet.
There are also forums at www.asp.net where you can find a lot of people
to help you.
