Cannot stream WMV file RRS feed

  • Question

  • Very new to WHS and wanted to try the streaming.  I have downloaded 3 .wmv files to the server but always get this popup - An error occured while trying to play the video.  The video file may be missing, it may be an unsupported file type, or another user may be streaming the video.

    Music plays fine.  No other users have access to the server yet.  Below is the error in the app logs.  One strange thing to note, the default website has a ? in the globe.

    Event code: 3005

    Event message: An unhandled exception has occurred.

    What is the source of the file (i.e. did you record something through Media Center, then convert it to wmv)?  Perhaps the audio is AC3, which is not a streamable media file in this beta release.

  • @Kariya21 - This doesn't look like it has to do with codecs. The error code indicates that "the remote host closed the connection."

    To the OP - Were you trying to access this content from within your network or from outside? I wonder if there is either a router setting getting in the way or if the session timeout is not long enough.

  • I have tried it from a computer outside the subnet, one inside and then from the actual WHS.  It works on the Home server if you play in media player, just not when trying to stream it through the Silverlight player.
