Hello !

I am currently using windows meadia player component to stream the live (WMV) feed. I would like to transform this to Silverlight is there any possible way. Please note that it is a live feed not an ondemand video placed in the server.

I want a similar code but with a silver light player please.

there are two approaches to get media into the silverlight format

1. Use Expressions Encoder.
2. Using Windows Media Encoder Transcoding / Encoding

The approachable user interface in Expression Encoder 2 gives designers, editors and producers the ability to generate gorgeous rich media content wrapped in a Silverlight experience. Encode a wide array of file formats, produce live events, or run batch encodes from the command line to make your media ready for Silverlight.
