I can't stream media files


Recommended Posts

Hello, I've recently set up a Windows 2012 server datacenter edition for storage and media streaming.

I downloaded media streaming essentials, I couldn't set up a domain name so I figured it would work using only the IP address. It doesn't

More specifically, when I try to access an mp4 file as a client, a blank web page appears

Btw I've also installed windows server essentials pack and set up an internal domain.


Any help?

Ftp? Why ftp?

use an IIS. It works much better.


Ok, I'm using  http now but I still can't see any video, only audio output

Unless I'm missing something, particularly the main purpose of your setup, but have you considered using products like Plex, Kodi, Jellyfin, or Emby?


These are more purpose-built for media streaming.
