Media only sharing from WHS not streaming RRS feed

  • Question

  • I am able to play audio and video files from WHS to WMP11 in Vista. But in my terms it is only shared, not streamed.
    So that when playing a file it actually transfers the whole file to the client before it plays. I am expecting streaming to play AS IT transfers.
    I have proved this by playing both a short and long AVI file. After a few seconds wait, the short file played. But the long file just showed the 'busy' cursor until I got fed up waiting!

    Is it possible to truly stream from WHS?

    I am able to stream from any PC client on my network to my Unix notebook, so long as I mount the drive which has the media first.

  • do you have media sharing enabled on the server?  did u add the location of the files u want to play to ur library in WMP 11?  the files should show up in ur library after u add the location of the files.  i just dbl click the song and it starts playing immediately...same for videos.
