Showing particular frame, enforcing highiest quality

Oct 24, 2011 at 8:36 AM


I'm working as coder in IT project whitch is based on SMF.

It's a great platform and it really satisfies our needs.

However there are two main features whitch I need to implement and don't know how to do it.

Feature #1) An user must be able to preview a smooth streaming movies frame-by-frame - whitch means that when movie is paused and user clicks some button next/previous frame is presented. 

Do I need to implement some custom behaviour or is it rather straightforward? I tried to set current position to +- 30ms but it did not work - nothing happened.

Feature #2) In particular mode an user must be able to see movie with highiest quality available. Is it achievable? Does smooth streaming quality depend only on Silverlight players decision or does it depend on some IIS Media Services inner load statistics too?

I'd really appreciate any help, suggestions and potential solutions because, as I mentioned, these are core features for my project.

Best regards,
