Any way to stream mp3s with 2003 Media Services that does not use x-ms-wax?


  • Hello,

    We are limited to the use of Windows Server 2003 with Media Services (version 9) to stream audio. We would like our files to be playable on a wide variety of platforms/browsers, but so far we can not get them to play on anything other than computers with Windows. I see that Media Services is serving our MP3s with mime type x-ms-wax. I would like it to serve them with audio/mpeg. That is the mime type I have specified in IIS. Is there a way to overrride Media Services' transformation of these files into MS media objects?

    I know one answer might be to this is upgrade the server to 2008. But because of bureaucratic issues, that can't happen right now. I would like to hear if this problem is solved in 2008.

    Thanks for any ideas!

  • There is no way to modify the MIME type that WMS responds with.  Why not serve the MP3s from IIS?  It's not true streaming, but it should work fine.

  • Ok again here’s a real answer for your problems…

    You can use a Silverlight based web player that will support your needs, if you want i can provide you with a working Silverlight client so you can reach Windows, Mac and Linux.

    As for mobile, since you are using MP3 you can force the player to load as a single Mp3 file, again if you want I can help with that.
