Example

using Microsoft.WindowsMediaServices.Interop;
using System.Runtime.InteropServices;

// Declare variables.
WMSServer Server;
IWMSPlugin Plugin;
IWMSBroadcastPublishingPoint BCPubPoint; 

try
{
    // Create a new WMSServer object.
    Server = new WMSServerClass();

    // Retrieve the sample broadcast publishing point.
    BCPubPoint = (IWMSBroadcastPublishingPoint)Server.PublishingPoints["Sample_Broadcast"];

    // Stop the publishing point.
    BCPubPoint.Stop();

    // Specify the publishing point path.
    BCPubPoint.Path = "C:\\WMPub\\WMRoot\\Serverside_Playlist.wsx";

    // Retrieve the WMS Archive Data Writer plug-in. This is the
    // default archive plug-in for the publishing point.
    Plugin = BCPubPoint.BroadcastDataSinks["WMS Archive Data Writer"];

    // Make sure the plug-in is enabled. By default, it is 
    // not enabled.
    if (!Plugin.Enabled) Plugin.Enabled = true;

    // Begin archiving. This automatically starts the 
    // publishing point.
    BCPubPoint.StartArchive();

    // Record for 10 seconds.
    System.Threading.Thread.Sleep(10000);

    // Stop archiving. This does not stop the publishing
    // point.
    BCPubPoint.StopArchive();

}
catch (COMException comExc) {
    // TODO: Handle COM exceptions.
}
catch(Exception e)
{

}
finally
{
    // TODO: Cleanup code goes here.
