I have a new web site and I added the media player control to play music and video. I works when testing on my desktop, but when I get it to my server it won't play from the web site. Do I need to do something special with the win 2008 server? I'm reading about windows media server but it it seems to be for big time streaming projects, not web pages.

The only requirement to a server is that silverlight MIME types need to be registered:

.xap application/x-silverlight-app

.xaml application/xaml+xml


Hope this helps,
