I hope you have already seen the blog post from our team announcing the Smooth Streaming release to accompany Windows 8 Release Preview here . As Cenk blogs, we are very excited about this release and hope you all will build compelling rich media experiences...(read more)
At NAB 2012 in April, we announced an initial list of partners that licensed Smooth Streaming Client Porting Kit (link). Today, Roku announced that the support for Smooth Streaming is publicly available for Roku 2, Roku LT and Roku HD devices with version Roku software version 4.7. This update will be pushed to these devices in next 48 hours. You can get more details on their blog.
Cenk on the media team blogged about how to create a simple Metro app using standard video element that can consume Smooth Streaming content.
On Wednesday, February 29, Windows division proudly unveiled the Windows 8 Consumer Preview release to the world.
We recently announced the release of IIS Smooth Streaming Client 1.1 for Windows Phone 7 (link). Shortly after, Microsoft also announced release of client’s companion Silverlight Media Framework (SMF) 2.2 (link). SMF utilizes the client and offers easier app development for Windows Phone 7 through rich controls. I would not get into this more at this point of time. You can always find more documentation on that online.
We released the Beta 2 for the IIS Smooth Streaming Player Development Kit (SSPDK) that contains the SmoothStreamingMediaElement (SSME) interface. With this release we added a fun new feature. We refer to this as Composite Manifest Support for Rough Cut Editing. The idea is simple:
- I have many clips but want to create a composite clip taking relevant portions from these clips.
- I have a large clip from an NBA game, I want to create a highlight for this game.
Now, let’s expand this simple idea.
Today, we are very both excited and pleased to announce and release a Beta 2 of IIS Smooth Streaming Player Development Kit (SSPDK) 1.0. With this release are adding support for Fast Forward/Rewind and Rough Cut Editing scenarios in addition to other features. Please see details below.
SSPDK is intended to aid the development of rich Smooth Streaming players and experiences.
In this post I plan to cover building a very basic Smooth Streaming Player using Smooth Streaming Media Element (SSME) part of Smooth Streaming Player Development Kit. In other words, building a “Hello World” equivalent for Smooth Streaming Client (“Hello Smooth Streaming”). This post is split into two parts. In the first part, I will be covering how to get basic playback working in a browser window for Smooth Streaming content. This should be really easy as you will see. In the second part, we would add some basic playback controls like Play, Pause, Stop and Volume controls.
