  • WMS Playlist Vs IIS7 Web Playlists

    Oct 17, 2008 01:03 AM|Mathirajan|LINK

    We are using WMS serverside playlist in our application - I just found IIS7 Web Playlists CTP2, I'm trying to understand the difference between these two.

    Our requirement is to add advertisements like TV commercials to a main video. I appreciate any inputs on this, mainly the correct platform to use - should it be wms server side playlist or IIS7 web playlist & authentication.

    Hi Mathi,

    Web Playlists is a progressive download solution while WMS Server-side playlists is used for streaming.

    There are a few questions I wanted to ask before determining if Web Playlists would work for your scenario:

    • <div mce_keep="true">Do you enforce skip on your advertisments?</div>
    • <div mce_keep="true">Are your advertisements coming from a third party ad provider or are they local to your machine?</div>

    Hi Vishal,

    1. No, the advertisements cannot be skipped.

    2. The advertisements are local.

    We also want to log the statistics & authenticate the users.

    How can one decide which platform to choose for their requirement. Anything published regarding this?

    Hi Mathi

    There is a lot of documentation on Web Playlists and WMS SSPL. However, there is hardly anything differentiating the two. I will try to produce a blog post shortly.


    Meanwhile, Web Playlists would work well for you scenario (assuming you don't conventional streaming). Here is a set of links that will help you get started. I will happy to answer any more questions:
