I have Windows Media Services on Server 2008 R2 installed on a Server and am using SharePoint 2010 as my web front end. I would like to display a list of media files that people can select from, and when clicked, display the media in either the web browser or windows media player. The list of displayable files needs to automatically update when someone uploads a new file to the windows media serve.
I don't mind writing a Visual Web Part for SharePoint which does all of this, but I am wondering if there is something that I can do out of the box so to speak.
Has anyone done something like this before?
I am assuming that Media Services has an appropriate SDK that one can use.

Hi Thanks, for your reply :)
That was what I was assuming, however, the question I was asking was has someone done something similar (and might provide an example).
I have unmarked your post as the answer as I think marking a post should be done by the person asking the original question.

However, there is a project at https://github.com/stwood/Microsoft-Media-Platform-Content-Manager that joins IIS Media Services with SharePoint 2010. I'd definitely suggest using that instead. Plus you get the benefits of using Smooth Streaming.
