I have been in the search for a streaming media solution.
I want to create a private streaming media server.
One that I can add and remove songs from, and start and stop the publishing point through a website.
I have used Windows Media Services for years, but since it was last seen under Windows 2008 server
I am looking for another solution (or) should I stick with 2008 Server?
IIS Streaming Media is another solution, as long as it can be configured to run an audio ONLY type of media server.
And allow for a web-based start and stop of the publishing point?
I have also thought about running a Shoutcast server or IceCast (Installed, but cannot get to work) if I can only find information on implementing a web based solution.
IceCast does have a web interface, but not sure about starting and stopping the publishing point or adding songs to the playlist.
For testing, I am using my windows 10 pro laptop, and I have windows 2003 server, as well as the 180 day trial of the windows 2016 server.
(Love 2016, but dang, that price is steep!!)
Any information or suggestions would be great.

IIS media service is an integrated feature with live smooth streaming, smooth streaming, bit rate throttling.
I think it could be a choice to select IIS media service to build an steaming media server. This link provide the instruction about the media extension in IIS:

Thank You, Yuk.
I will take a closer look at it, and see if I can at least get something started along the ways of at least creating a playlist that "Plays" the media in it.
I really do miss running the old Windows Media Services.
If smooth streaming can do a better job, then I will be a very happy person.

Thanks, Yuk Ding
I am working on it, got my first playlist playing.
However, it is only play one track, and will not advance to the next track.
Have a good one.
Going to open a question up regarding the non-advance to the next track.
