Masterpage with header and footer and buttons on header to change between silverlight and asp pages.

Hi, I would like to create a master page with a header and footer. The header contains buttons which call either an ASP page or Silverlight page. I want to be able to select a page and the relevant page is loaded. The problem I am facing is that the footer does not dock to the bottom unless I include a fixed height. Can someone help as to the best way of doing this. I am not sure if I need to use a masterpage for this or just a simple page? The following is my code on the master page:<head runat="server"> <title>Staff Profiles</title> <asp:ContentPlaceHolder ID="head" runat="server"></asp:ContentPlaceHolder> <link href="CSS/mainpage.css" rel="stylesheet" type="text/css" /> </head> <body> <form id="form1" runat="server" > <div id="container"> <div class="mainHeader" align="center"> <table width="920" height="120" border="0" align="center" cellpadding="0" cellspacing="0"> <tr> <td width="10" rowspan="2"><img src="images/Header_01.jpg" alt="" width="10" height="120" /></td>

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?

Live audio-video streaming in an asp.net website


My project is to create a website that facilitates giving live lectures on intranet. Hence, the bandwidth is not an issue here.

Also, I have implemented some basic code of live streaming using windows media encoder SDK in a C# console application. I was able to view the streaming on another LAN PC in VLC player.

Now, how do I implement my code in the asp.net website? What I want is that in order to start the streaming (i.e., start the live lecture), the facutly just clicks on a button in a webpage. This will stream his movements to the students (via a server). Also, this will enable the facutly to view himself on the webpage.

Is this even possible? I mean it would be like : both the student and the faculty will access the same website. The interface to both of them will be different - one will start the stream and the other (student) will receive the stream.

Or will I have to create a different application to start the streaming? So it would be like the facutly will start that applicaiton to start the streaming and the students will access the stream throught the player embedded in the website.

Another question is : what player should I use to receive the stream (on the student side)? Windows Media Player (I heard that it has problems with firefox)? Or the ubiqutous flash plugin will succeed in capturing the media encoder stream?

Navigating between Silverlight pages and MCV2 pages



I have a Silverlight 4 application hosted in a aspx page that sits in the root of an MVC2 web application.

My deal is that i want to be able to navigate to and from my normal MVC pages and my Silverlight hosting page.

What is the best way to do this ?  Basically for example , user's log in to the splash page using the silverlight page i.e Defualt.aspx.

then after they are signed in I want to re-route then to the index page in the mvc2 view that is at \views\Index.asxp

Should I be putting my silverlight host page into the route tables and adding it as a normal view ?
