I followed exactly the instructions in http://learn.iis.net/page.aspx/620/live-smooth-streaming-for-iis-7---getting-started/
I am using expression encoder pro 4. And I can see that the IIS Server achieved ISMV from encoder. But at client side(http://IISserver/smoothstreamingplayer.html) , no video displayed .
Can anyone here help me with this basic setup? Thanks in advance.

I have the same problem, I connect the encoder and start transmission at the point of publishing created.
But on the client side does not carry any type of display on the player.
I get error 4001. Direct link to the player. ISML or \ Manifest does not work for me.
If you had any progress let me know.

It finally worked for me. The main problem is that the player doesn't support video with profile level beyond basic profile.
Make sure that IIS get streams from encoder by checking archived directory in IIS side.

Okay, just for my understanding.
So the link in the player is not for ISML?
but for files that are being recorded in real time?
What should I put in the media URL.
In my case I have to get LIVE

As I mentioned in my first post,--- client (player) side(http://IISserver/smoothstreamingplayer.html)

Not exactly. What version of the player are you using? Silverlight can support H264 in Baseline, Main and High profiles just fine.
You should be using the latest version of the Silverlight Media Framework Player 2.0 (http://smf.codeplex.com ) for optimal quality and feature support. That is the player release that uses the underlying Smooth Streaming
Client 1.0 SDK which is our most recent released and tested player SDK for Silverlight.
If anyone on this thread is still having issues with their playback let me know.

Thanks to johndeu for the answer. I still need your help on the playback.
The decoder I am using is from smoothstreamingplayer-2.2010.0705.1.zip (http://smf.codeplex.com/releases/view/48471#DownloadId=131142)
If in expression encoder Live broadcast project, I set video profile level=high profile (H.264 High) , there is no video decoded at client side.
Keep everything same except video profile level = (H.264 baseline), then video showed on client side.

What version of Expression Encoder are you using? Is this 4.0? What are your preset settings?
In Expression Encoder 4, If you go into live broadcast and select H.264 IIS Smooth Streaming 720p preset, it will default to H.264 High. I just tested with the latest build of SMF 2.0 player and it is working on my machine currently.
Silverlight supports the following for H264 content, so this should work fine.
H264 (ITU-T H.264 / ISO MPEG-4 AVC)
Supports H.264 and MP43 codecs.
Supports Base, Main, and High Profiles
Supports only progressive (non-interlaced) content.
Supports only 4:2:0 chroma subsampling profiles.
Supports PlayReady DRM with Mp4 (H264 and AAC-LC)

John, Thanks for your answer. And I guess that I know where the problem is: Similar to what you did with expression encoder pro 4, by default, the video profile is set to high. Then in the video "encode" setting, I only enabled 199Kbps (video 276*208) because
my PC can not run real-time for higher and multi-rate. For this resolution, the video profile should be base level and thus inconsistent with other settings. Then decoder can not decode this video.

Is live smooth streaming supported on VC-1 codec? I followed this article
http://learn.iis.net/page.aspx/620/live-smooth-streaming-for-iis-7---getting-started/ but couldn't get the stream to display.
I have Expression Encoder 4 Pro "without codecs". There is no H.264 codec. I used VC-1 IIS Smooth Streaming 720p with Live Source. Live source is my web cam. I can connect to the publishing point and start encoding in expression. When I open
http://iisserver/progressivedownloadplayer.html the live stream doesn't show in the silverlight player.
Am I missing something or do I need to use H.264 codec? Thanks.
