Authentication types RRS feed

  • Question

  • I configured Windows Media Services once back when Windows Server 2003 was around. The company I work for wants me to implement a streaming solution that allows us to require usernames and passwords to view videos. How is this accomplished in Streaming Media Services? Is there a way to have just a text file with the usernames and passwords and have the authentication happen based of that?

  • For any version of Windows Media Services (9.0, 9.5, 2008, 2008 R2) authentication is handled the same way.  Setup accounts in Windows and then use the WMS Negotiate Authentication plug-in.  This is located under either the server or publishing point level / Properties tab / Authentication.
