How to create DNLA or other Media Server on Windows Web Server 2008

Our company would like to serve video files to an LED HDTV monitor hanging on the wall for people to view pictures of products we make.  We can do this currently with a USB drive plugged directly into the monitor however we would like to also use the built in wireless networking and stream pictures and video from either our Windows Web Server 2008 or Windows 2008 Standard Server.  I would rather use the Web Server 2008 as an Intranet server.  The Sharp AQUOS LC-60LE632U has menu options to contect to a DNLA server and the menu status apparently sees one on our network but no server can be found.   Should I be using this feature or some other media service?  Need details of what and how to stream these files.

Hi,

you need to enable  Windows Media Connect, which enables it to stream content to Windows Media Connect–enabled devices such as Xbox 360.

Consider a free product like Tversity if you plan on using the server for a webserver/intranet you may want to isolate functions.

Tversity id very fast and easy to setup, and also does on the fly transcoding if required.

I cannot find Windows Media Connect to enable.  Does installing Windows Media Services 2008 provide this function?

In installed Tversity however the Sharp DNLA server search cannot find the Tversity Media Server.  I have disabled the firewall for testing and made sure the Tversity "share media" is turned on.
