Windows Media Services 2008 and the Media Web Part

Posted By:      Posted Date: September 06, 2010    Points: 0   Category :SharePoint
I have Media Services 2008 installed and working (tested with Windows Media Player, works fine) and a SharePoint 2010 Enterprise installation. I want to use the Media web part to display content from Media Services 2008. Is this possible using an MMS:// style url? Or does the media web part only like http:// or "local" content ? Media Services 2008 is installed without http:// components at the moment, but I can't find any information about what the media web part supports so don't know if it will work with mms://

Help with an InvalidCastException with Windows Media Services on Windows Server 2008 R2

Hi, I developed an application that utilizes content from Windows Media Services. The entire application was written in C# on a Windows Server 2008 x86 environment using the interop assemblies provided by Microsoft. Everything works fine, except when I try to run the application on a 64-bit machine. When I run the application on the 64-bit machine, I get the following error: Unable to cast COM object of type 'Microsoft.WindowsMediaServices.Interop.WMSServerClass' to interface type 'Microsoft.WindowsMediaServices.Interop.IWMSServer'. This operation failed because the QueryInterface call on the COM component for the interface with IID '{845FB958-4279-11D2-BF23-00805FBE84A6}' failed due to the following error: Error loading type library/DLL. (Exception from HRESULT: 0x80029C4A (TYPE_E_CANTLOADLIBRARY)). I tried looking for an updated interop assembly, but couldn't locate anything newer than the one that I was already using. Does anyone know how to get over this hurdle?

SQL EXPRESS 2008 replication issue with sync media center on windows 7


Dear all,

I am not able to configure the system in order to make it solve merge conflicts interactively (that is with the help of the user).

The configuration is the following one:

PC-A: sql server 2008. With one the DB "myDB" published for replication.

PC-B: sql server 2008 r2 express. With two replicas of "myDB" on the same instance of sql express: "myDB1Replica" and "myDB2Replica"

The two replicas simulate two users that change the content of the same record so that I can test how the system behaves in case of conflicts.

Everything runs smoothly if "Resolve conflicts automatically" is set... but I get this error message when "Resolve conflicts interactively (only applies to articles that support interactive resolution)" is selected.

Error: The merge process failed to get correct information about the Interactive Resolver component from the registry. Verify that the registry exists and that the path is correct.

Of course this has been enabled on the article (from PC-A on sql server) and on the subscription (from both PC-B sql express and syncro center) as well.


I have been searching everywhere and found nothing! Any help would be really appreciated! I really need to run the interactive conflict resolution

They also discuss Web Part infrastructure and how to create custom Web Parts.

It allows you to take advantage of the peer-to-peer distribution model and still redirect users back to your app once they have downloaded your content (prior to viewing).

Windows service can't use Reporting Services on SQL Service 2008 R2

Hello. I have a Windows service that run as Local System account. The service uses the Reporting Services ReportService2005.asmx web service.

What has changes in SQL Server 2008 R2, that doesn't allow the Local System account to use Repoting Services? And is it possible to configure Reporting Services to allow it?   - Per

How to save Windows credentials to a data source in SQL Server Reporting Services 2008 using Visual

I am trying to create a shared data source for SQL Server Reporting Services 2008 that uses a specific Windows user ID and password to connect to the database. Using the Report Manager web interface, if I create a shared data source and specify "Credentials stored securely in the report server", I can check the "Use as Windows credentials when connecting to the data source" checkbox. This tells SSRS that the user ID and password I specify are from a Windows user, not a SQL Server user. I want to create the shared data source using Visual Studio though. In Visual Studio I have an option to use stored credentials but there is no equivalent of the "Use as Windows credentials when connecting to the data source" checkbox. SSRS always assumes that user and password are for a SQL Server user, not a Windows user, and thus the connection fails. Does anyone know how to tell Visual Studio that the stored credentials are for a Windows user?

Windows Sharepoint Foundation 2010 - Document Library Settings with Reporting Services 2008 R2 in in

I have a client who has recently upgraded their SharePoint system to Windows Sharepoint Foundation 2010 with Reporting Services 2008 R2 in integrated mode. I have configured reporting services and am able to deploy reports to SharePoint. The client created a document library before the upgrade to WSF 2010. I need to add Report Builder 3.0 to the New Document menu and found the following article. http://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/library/bb326289.aspx "Allow management of content types?" is set to yes under the advanced document library settings. The problem is that when I try to "add from existing site content types" the reporting services content types are not in the list. I appreciate any help you can give me.

Live audio-video streaming in an asp.net website using windows media encoder


The project is to provide the facility of providing live lectures in an intranet. So the bandwidth is not an issue. Also it means that I cannot use any internet streaming server like ustream (the project being limited to intranet).

I created a C# console application and successfully created a live stream using windows media encoder sdk. I was also able to capture the stream on another LAN PC in VLC player.

I want to know if I can implement this in my asp.net website. It should be something like this : The faculty visits the site and clicks on a start button on a webpage. This will start the live stream of the faculty. It will be received by the students on different computers by accessing the same website. Also, the faculty should be able to view himself on the webpage (just like in the windows media encoder predefined UI).

Is this possible to implement in the website? I mean both the facutly and the student will implement the same website. Also, the stream has to pass via a streaming server.

Or do I need to create a different application to start streaming and the students will view the stream from the website?

Also, which player do I embed to view the stream? Windows media player (I heard that it has issues with firefox) or the ever-available flash player? Will the flash player be able to capture the media encoder stream?
