    Question

  • I'd like to know if Windows Media Services or at least Windows Media Player can be used on Windows Server 2008?

  • Windows Media Services are available as a separate download: http://www.microsoft.com/windows/windowsmedia/forpros/serve/prodinfo95.aspx

     

    Windows Media Player is available if you install the "User Desktop Experience" (not available in Core, but WMS are)

  • Thank you for your reply.

    I managed to install WMS on the fully-fledged version of Longhorn, however I now get the following error:

    The streaming media server failed.
    Error code: 0xc00d1583
    Error text: The plug-in 'WMS Advanced FF/RW Format Media Parser' cannot be loaded on this version of Windows.

    Also, I have enabled the Quality Windows Audio/Video Experience Feature but I cannot seem to find anywhere where it says "User Desktop Experience", that would somehow infer that Windows Media Player could in fact be installed.

    Thank you for your time.

  • Sorry, it's "Desktop Experience". You'll find it under Features.

     

    The Quality Windows Audio/Video is QoS, and has nothing to do with Windows Media Player.

     

    Here are installation instructions for Media Services: http://support.microsoft.com/kb/934518

  • Did you resolve the problem by any chance, as I'm having the exact problem.
    I installed win2008 fresh on a new machine and then am trying to install all the roles, but this one failed.
    Any help would be great.

  •    What role failed to install? What error did it give you?

  • Hi there. I have Windows 2008 Media Server. I currently have two issues, one is this annoying event log that I can't get rid of, even with the plug-in disabled.

    The Windows Media server failed.

    Error code: 0xc00d1583

    Error text: The plug-in 'WMS Advanced FF/RW Format Media Parser' cannot be loaded on this version of Windows.

    The other is I can't get any streams outside of the network to work.

    <CABLE MODEM> <LINKSYS (192.168.0.254) DHCP is OFF> <W2K8 Server w/Media Services (192.168.0.1) DHCP service is ON>

    The server has two NICs

    One goes to the LINKSYS, the other to a 40 port ethernet switch where all the nodes of the network are connected. We have bridged these two NICs

    Now, we can set up Windows Media Encoder 9 to push a stream to the server and create a publishing point dynamically. Any workstation within the network can tune into the publishing point without issue.

    NO Client outside the local network can tune in. Windows Media Encoder 9 on a PC outside of the network can successfully authenticate when pushing a stream. But the stream lasts 4-5 seconds then the encoder stops with the following errors:

    0xC00D2EE6 and 0xC00D0005

    The W2K8 Server has firewall turned off for DOMAIN, PUBLIC and PRIVATE. There is no Webserver installed.

    IP: 192.168.0.1, Subnet: 255.255.255.0, Gateway: 192.168.0.254

    Port forwarding on LINKSYS have been made for the following ports: 80, 554, 1755, 5005

    What is my problem??

  • Hi,

    I had this problem as well on a fresh 2008 server install.

    Turns out this service: 'WMS Advanced FF/RW Format Media Parser' is not avaliable on 2008 Standard, you need Enterprise.

    http://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/library/ms753878(VS.85).aspx


    It is only a plug-in and shouldnt cause WMS to fail running.

    Regards
