Event Notification

Applies To: Windows Server 2008

You can configure Event Notification plug-ins in Windows Media Services to receive notices of client and server internal events and then respond to changes in the state of the Windows Media server. For example, you can use a script to customize the way that the Windows Media server authorizes and responds to internal events or you can receive notification of internal Windows Media server events through Windows Management Instrumentation (WMI) and route them to an external application. To view all the possible internal events that the Windows Media server can report, see Windows Media Services SDK: Internal Events.
