The versatility of Windows Media Streaming doles out alternatives galore. Broadcast live, archive playlists, or stream on demand content. Distribute publishing points across a local area network (LAN) or the entire Internet.
The "how to" behind Windows Media Streaming is pretty basic. The broadcaster sends a signal via the Windows Media Encoder up to the Windows 2k8 Server. The server then acts as a common hub for the world, where viewers may tune in through Windows Media Player.
