Updated: November 1, 2010

Applies To: Windows 7, Windows Server 2008, Windows Server 2008 R2, Windows Vista

Use the Add Publishing Point URL dialog box to specify the location of an encoding computer that uses a Live Smooth Streaming profile to encode the live source content or the location of a publishing point on another Live Smooth Streaming server that relays the encoded content in a distributed network.

UI Element List

Element Name Description


Enter the URL of the Live Smooth Streaming encoder (for example, http:// encoder_name) or publishing point (for example, https:// server_name/site_name/publishing_point_name.isml).

The URL must begin with either the http:// or https:// URL prefix.

Typically, a Live Smooth Streaming encoder will deliver the encoded content through port 80. If the encoder delivers the encoded content through a different port, specify the port value in the URL (for example, http:// encoder_name:port).

The URL of a publishing point on another Live Smooth Streaming server must end with the .isml file name extension.


If the connection to the encoder or publishing point requires authentication, select the friendly name of the credential with the appropriate user name and password.
