Windows Meadia

P: n/a
Hi All.

I am looking for articles on Windows Media development in ASP.NET pages. Dynamically adding playlists etc. Can I use server side code or is it all client side controlled? Spent the last few hours browsing the web and not feeling any wiser. If anybody has links that begin to answer any of the above , please forward them to me.

In advance

many thanks

There are 3 primary books on Windows Media 9 for the level you're talking
about. The "Orange Book", "Red Book" and "Blue Book"

Blue Book: "Microsoft WIndows Media Resource Kit" from MS Pres. Covers
studio to distrubution with case studies

Red Book: "Fundamentals of Programming the Windows Media Platform" by Seth
McEnvoy. Uses VB6 examples (easily ported to VB.Net using Interop) for
creating wrappers for the Media Player, Media Encoder and Media Services
(the 2003 Server streaming media service) using the SDKs for all of these
tools.

Orange Book:"Windows Media 9 Series by Example" by Nels Johnson. The
ugliest of them all, with the cheesiest cover you've ever seen the last one
most people buy ... and the one most people end up happiest with. This has
the information you asked about (but put a book cover on it or you'll never
take it to work with you).

Flip through them all looking for ASX and WSX files.

Here's a hot tip: Streaming (Actual and true "Streaming") is free and so
easy with Windows 2003 Server that you'll swear you must be missing
something.
This isn't a dotnet issue, and the best groups to ask questions start with :
microsoft.public.windowsmedia.XXXX
