Playing back MMS stream

Jul 1, 2014 at 2:46 AM
Trying to get SMFPlayer V2.7 to play back an MMS stream and just can't get the thing to work.
        Dim Item As New PlaylistItem
        Item.MediaSource = New Uri("mms://myserver.com/something.wmv")
        Item.DeliveryMethod = DeliveryMethods.Streaming
        SMFMediaPlayer.Playlist.Add(Item)
I've also tried it setting DeliveryMethod to ProgressiveDownload - no joy. There's nothing in the logging information to suggest what might be wrong. The same media URL plays back fine in Windows Media Player on the same machine so I'm pretty sure it's not a networking issue. Smooth Stream sources on the same server work fine too.

Anyone got any ideas what might be wrong here?

Thanks

probably it's a codec issue, is it VC-1 encoding?
btw, are you sure it supports mms:// protocol?
