Viewing IPTV from Microsoft Media Player

We have a series of IP/TV servers from which we would like to view programs with Microsoft Media Player on the users desktops, Including Multicasted videos. Has anyone done this? How do you get a URL to post on a WEB site that will point people to the video file and then view it with MMP?

Re: Viewing IPTV from Microsoft Media Player

With Windows Media Player, you can encode the video stream into ASF files, and derive ASX URLs from there. At this point, you can post these URLs into a company intranet, and upon a click, this HTTP URL will fire up the Windows Media Player. Both Multicast and Unicast are supported in this configuration.
