Direct Uploading on Silverlight Streaming Service

P: n/a
I want to upload a file direct to the Silverlight Streaming Service from a
Web Client such as silverlight application.

As per our product requirement we want to upload a .WMV file directly from
silverlight client to Silverlight streaming service. I tried to user
WebClient and HttpWebRequest for that purpose but, unfortunately I can found
the way to do so. There are some problems with both classes.

1. There is no property of get credentials in both classes
2. They are not supporting the http web method "PUT" to upload file on
silverlight streaming service.

Due to problems define above; we are unable to develop a silverlight client
that directly uploads .wmv videos to the Silverlight streaming service.

Is any possibility to upload a video file directly from silverlight client
to silverlight streaming service, or any other way to fullfill this
requirment.

Hi Faisal,

As you said, due to the limitation in Silverilght 2 Beta 2 we can not do
this directly in Silverlight. A workaround is to use an intermediate web
service. We can upload the video to our server and send the video to
Silverlight Streaming site from our server.

If you have further questions I suggest you ask them in the Silverlight
forum because currently there's no dedicated managed newsgroup for
Silverlight.
