Video streams can be used for these file types: .wmv.
Video streams allow your viewers to watch video over the Internet without first downloading the file to their personal computers. The video is continuously displayed to your viewers while being delivered from the UWF server.
Mac Users: If you are creating your video using "iMovie" or "FinalCut," you need to convert your video to a Windows Media (.wmv) file to work with the UWF server. "WMV Studio" (available for purchase at http://www.flip4mac.com/wmv.htm) allows you to save your video to wmv. It can also be used to convert existing QuickTime (.mov) files to wmv.
Follow the instructions below to stream a Windows Media File. If you do not already have a video to be streamed and will be creating one, refer to Creating a Video File: Guidelines.
Save the .wmv file on your I: drive or your department/organization web folder.
Note: Several software programs are available to convert other file types to .wmv.
In the example below, John Doe saved his file "stream1.wmv" on his I: drive within a sub-folder named "mystreams."
The stream file connects your Windows Media file with the UWF streaming server so that your video can be viewed over the Internet.
