Running Windows Media Server 2003 on VMware!

A friend asked me to check out if there was a means of running our own Video Streaming.

My Answer was : Of course! And it'll cost you uh well...almost nothing!

I've just tested it at home. And it works like a charm and we're just talking about a simple VMware 5.5 Windows 2003 Server. Streaming goes fine and cool!

I'll upload the print screens tomorrow and write a small document to implement it for your ESX server, although this is pure for demonstration purposes on my VMware 5.5 test server.

After installation of Media Server

Test Streaming...

Check out the url mms:// and I invoking it via my Firefox I get a one time message.

And here streaming the Video via my (laptop)client PC at home, while my server [is in the garage ;-) ] streams it nicely with the unicast mode.

PS: I'll detail out more in the document which you can download sometime later...
