I have a server with Windows 2008 Datacenter Server running IIS 7.0. I have defined a web site in the IIS 7.0 UI and secured it with a verisign Site Pro certificate. I created Bindings to HTTP using port 80 and HTTPS using port 443 and my certificate.
I created a virtual directory named Playlists that points to my Data directory I built 3 WebPlaylists in the Data directory using relative paths to the files in the Data/Media directory . Running Windows Media Player 9, 10, 11, I use Open URl and point to
one of the playlist files. When I try to use a URL
https://dcmedia.mydomian.com/playlists/Playlist3.isx I get a response of "Windows Media Player encountered a problem while downloading the file.". Clicking on Web Help provides the error code - 800C0008 and the description - The download of the specified
resource has failed.
Now the weird part. If I turn off the requirement for SSL and Run Windows Media Player using a URL of
http://dcmedia.mydomain.com/playlists/Playlists3.isx everything works fine and the file plays. I can get a .wax file to play using https but would love to use Web Playlists instead. Any help,
insight, solutions, or magic you can provide would be much appreciated.

I would like to ask you if you manage that wmp access the ".isx" file. Mine give the message: "cannot find the file", although it´s there. I´m trying the test in iis7, localhost.
If you could try it, here:
Thanks in advance,
