SMF player buffer size control

Jul 18, 2011 at 4:05 AM

Hi,
Is there a way I can control the buffering size/ duration?

When the smf player is playing a smooth streaming video and then paused.
Using fiddler2, I can see it will further download the next 30 seconds of the media.

Can I set it to 1min? or can I set it according to size, not time?

Thanks for the help!

I believe you can control this by configuring the SmoothStreamingMediaElement. To do this, create a Config.xml file and add it to your project with Build Action = Content. Here is more info on the config file from the SSME forum. http://forums.iis.net/t/1172146.aspx

Note: LiveBufferTimeMilliseconds has been removed and is now a property of the SSME: http://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/library/microsoft.web.media.smoothstreaming.smoothstreamingmediaelement.liveplaybackoffset(v=VS.90).aspx
