.ASX from the Web Server


I have two servers,  IIS web server  and Windows media server.Some articles published on the web site have a video link at the bottom of the article wich is absolute link to the video content on the Media Server ( mms://......wmv ).But sometimes video are to long for user to watch it all,  for example 30 Min. or so. So i want somehow to give a chanse for user to deside wich part of a video file he would like to see.Insted of  spliting  a video file in two or more pices  i put markers on that file (Windows media file editor) and wrote an .ASX file that tells the media player where are those markes and wich media file to play and where it is stored.That creates a playlist that is shown in Windows media player on the right side and the user is able to jump form one part to another of that video file.Everything is working fine if i open an .ASX   localy,  when clicked it opens a WM player and expand the playlist.But form a web server the story is a bit diferent , it opens a WM player but does not expand the playlist while  I'am still able to jump from marker to marker but only with the back and forward button wich is not the point.The same .ASX file is working if i download it from the web and play it localy.In opera browser it is easy to configure for an  .asx file extansions   to be  downloaded  automaticly and opend, thats works fine to.I do not understand where i did the mistake or it's just not posible to expand the  playlist from the web server for some reason.

Thank you in advanced.
