OverviewIIS Smooth Streaming is an extension for Internet Information Services (IIS) 7.0 that enables adaptive streaming of media from Windows Server 2008 to Silverlight clients via HTTP. Smooth Streaming dynamically detects current network and local PC conditions, and seamlessly switches the video quality of a media file that a Silverlight player receives. Consumers with high-bandwidth connections and newer hardware can experience HD quality streaming, and others with lower bandwidth speeds or older hardware receive an appropriate stream for their conditions, allowing all users to enjoy the best possible viewing experience at any moment during playback. FeaturesSmooth Streaming has the following features: * Delivers continuous playback to Silverlight at the highest quality the end user conditions will support at any given moment * Works with existing HTTP caches and caching networks * Simple content management, with each quality level of video managed as a single file * Simple configuration and presentation editing using the IIS Manager consoleBenefitsSmooth Streaming offers the following advantages to the content provider: * It can be less expensive to deploy, as it leverages existing HTTP caches and caching networks, rather than requiring specialized streaming servers at every node. * It offers better scalability and reach, reducing olast mileo issues because it can dynamically adapt to inferior network conditions as it gets closer to the userls home. * It adapts to end user playback conditions, rather than requiring the content providers to guess which bit rates are most likely to be accessible to their audience. * Better end user playback experiences lead to much longer engagement times, as proven during the Beijing Olympics in 2008.It also offers the following benefits for the end user: * Fast start-up and seek times because start-up and seeking can be initiated on the lowest bit rate before moving up to a higher bit rate. * No buffering, no disconnects, no playback stutter (as long as the user meets the minimum bandwidth requirement). * Seamless bit rate switching based on network conditions and CPU capabilities. * A generally consistent, smooth playback experience.RequirementsThe following prerequisites must be fulfilled to run the Smooth Streaming Beta installation package and install Smooth Streaming: * You must use IIS 7.0 running on Windows Server 2008 or Windows Vista® with Service Pack 1 (SP1). * The IIS Management Console for Internet Information Services 7.0 must be installed to manage the Smooth Streaming module using the IIS 7.0 user interface. * You must install IIS Smooth Streaming - Beta as an administrator.
