Sounds like you have a couple of issues there. Smooth Streaming itself is codec agnostic. The platform uses a fragmented MPEG-4 file container. In theory you could use any codec with that. And with Expression Encoder you can use either H.264 or VC-1.
However, some SKUs of Expression Encoder do not have the H.264 codec so you have to use VC-1.
What I suspect is happening is that you are actually encoding and transmitting the signal to IIS properly, but you're using a player that doesn't support Smooth Streaming. Based on the HTML file name I suspect you are using the progressive download template
from smf.codeplex.com. That won't do Smooth Streaming. Currently we have an issue wtih the Codeplex site and are in the process of restoring the Smooth Streaming HTML template. You can still use the Smooth Streaming Client SDK
http://www.iis.net/download/SmoothClient to develop your own client or use the (now very old) sample client refresh from

Thanks for your response.
I downloaded the sample client refresh from
http://www.microsoft.com/downloads/en/details.aspx?FamilyID=e44b0a2d-2e0c-48ff-bf57-3d05a20e2f6a&displaylang=en but still I can't see the live stream in the player. I can start encoding with no errors in Expression 4 Pro. I
don't know how to develop my own client. I hope that this will be fixed. I am able to stream ondemand videos encoded in VC-1 but not live streams. Thanks.

When you stream on demand videos, is it using the same 'sample client refresh' player or the previous one you were using? Is there an error in the Silverlight player when attempting to view the live stream?

Did anyone get Live Broadcast streaming working using File Source or Live Source?
