    IIS Media Services has not been updated in recent years. You should switch to Azure Media Services,

    Hi strikingknife,

    IIS 10 doesn't have build in video streaming feature, you need to install the IIS Media Service extension.

    When you install the IIS Media Service extension, you may run into a known issue that it tells you need IIS 7.0 or higher. You can solve this issue with the following scenario.

    Firstly closed IIS Manager, then changed the IIS MajorVersion in the registry to 9, installed urlrewrite from the MSI with no problems and changed the registry version back to 10.


    Value: MajorVersion

    As Jean Sun had posted. Make sure IIS is closed.
    Open RegEdit
    Locate the following key


    Value: MajorVersion

    Double Click, when opened
    Change to [Decimal]
    Change to [8]
    Download and install

    Change back the key to 
    Change to [Decimal]
    Change to [10]

    Open IIS.
    Go to the location where you want to have the media at.
    Then choose [Playlist] and get that going, then you can work on the other features.
    This is what I have learned from, and so far, so good.

    Except I am doing Audio, not Video.
    However, mine will not play the next one in line. It pauses when it is completed with the first track.

    Azure Media Services is not a solution for on-premises intranet video streaming, so it is not a 1:1 replacement for all cases.

    Another solution to installing IIS Media Services 4.1 on Windows 10 is to modify the downloaded MSI with Orca (part of WIndows SDK) or SuperOrca[1] and remove the LaunchCondition which checks the IIS version and prevents installation on Windows 10.

    This may be off-topic, but i'm trying to use web playlists for audio on IIS 10. I installed Media package by temporarily changing the registry to version 9 as previously suggested.

    Created an .asx playlist in WMP and imported it into Web Playlists but no .isx file is being created.  I feel I'm missing something here and would appreciate some suggestions.

    btw, where is the isx file supposed to appear?
