If you have an application that handles Windows Media content and you need an effective way to track content usage, Windows Media 9 Series now offers Digital Rights Management (DRM). 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).

DirectShow is an API that enables Windows applications to control a wide variety of audio/video input devices including (but not limited to) DV camcorders, Web cams, DVD drives, and TV tuner cards. It provides out-of-the-box support for a variety of formats, from WAV and AVI to Windows Media. DirectShow is also extensible, enabling third parties to support their own specialized devices, formats, or processing components. This article introduces the basic concepts behind DirectShow and gives a step-by-step tutorial showing how to create your own video effect filter.

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?
