Player URLs for default publishing points

Applies To: Windows Server 2008, Windows Server 2008 R2

The URL format a client should use when connecting to a stream from a default publishing point depends on whether you have set up the default publishing point as an on-demand or broadcast publishing point, as follows:

  • If the default publishing point is an on-demand publishing point, use any valid syntax for an on-demand publishing point. The requested content must be explicitly stated in the URL, such as mms://server/file.wmv.

  • If the default publishing point is a broadcast publishing point, use the format mms://server/* or mms://server/*.*, which requests all content referenced by the publishing point. If the publishing point is sourcing from a directory, this URL includes subdirectories.
