Stream Video from Server Essentials 2012 R2; not download!

Hi Experts,

I have been using Windows Home Server for years, and have upgraded to Server Essentials 2012 R2. I installed the Media Pack, and I'm able to view the video files in my library using remote access from any browser. However, when I click on a video - it doesn't stream it, it downloads it. I tried in IE and Chrome. From on my network (internal), as well as off (external).

I was able to stream the video in a new tab in previous versions- is there a work around, or something  I can do to enable streaming?

Thanks,

Angeal

It wasn't working because VLC was the default player for .mp4 files. After changing the setting back to the default (Windows Media Player) - video started to stream again.

Microsoft stopped new development on Windows Media Services and No further development will be done. The replacement technology is Smooth Streaming with IIS Media Services.
