I’ve just been scratching my head wondering why I can’t publish from Expression Encoder 2 to Silverlight Streaming using one of the new SL 2 media player templates. The simple answer being that the “Publish to Silverlight Streaming” plug-in doesn’t yet support this (you’ll probably see a message “No Silverlight template found. Please re-encode.” if you try to do this).
I had a play around and found a way to publish the SL 2 player to Silverlight Streaming and get it to play your video – you just have to do it manually rather than rely on the plug-in. Here are the steps I used…
<devlive:slscontrol silverlightversion="2.0" src="/27832/ProductViewer_Blog/" initparams='playlist=<playList><playListItems><playListItem mediaSource="http://silverlight.services.live.com/27832/Test_CanDelete/ProductViewer.wmv" frameRate="10" width="640" height="480" ></playListItem></playListItems></playList>'> </devlive:slscontrol>
Where 27832 is my account ID, Test_CanDelete is the fileSet name and ProductViewer.wmv is the video filename.
Of course, you could *just* publish the MediaPlayer application, publish all your videos to Silverlight Streaming as videos (rather than as part of your application) and then simply use the above technique to point the MediaPlayer to the required video.
