Setting up SSL for publishing points

    Question

  • Hi,

    We are using IIS Media Service 4.1 to create publishing points and run video streams. We want to setup SSL on these publishing point urls. I have not found any documentation on how to do that. I tried setting up SSL on 'default web site', this way publishing point urls also get SSL but then I get error "The remote server returned an error: (403) Forbidden."

    I'll be grateful for help.

    Thanks,

    Dami.

  • Hi,

    For any one who stumble cross this post to find a solution of this problem, I am just posting solution that I found working.

    The idea is to broadcast stream to you publishing point using http protocol and in your web portal where you are playing this stream in a video player control access that publishing point url with https protocol.

    Hope its helpful to other people.

    Thanks,

    Dami.

  • You are correct in assuming that you setup the SSL on the web site.  Once you can browse to https://yourservername then you should be able to get Smooth Streaming to work.  The key is that you must both browse to the web page that hosts the Silverlight XAP via SSL as well as use a HTTPS link to your video content (URL to the video.ism/manifest).

  • Hi David,

    Thank you for your response. I did exactly what you said. I didn't see any errors but I don't see any video playing. Any ideas what could it be?

    Thanks.

  • Make sure there are no prompts for certificates (usually you get this with self-signed certs).  Also, try getting a Fiddler trace http://fiddler2.com/get-fiddler and make sure the requests are actually being made.
