So you’ve got tons of windows media files and you need to stream them. The only problem is IIS has tons of overhead and the update headaches of Patches is getting old. So… here’s a quick and easy solution.
Once again, I’m going to assume you’re running Centos or Redhat. This applies to any Apache solution.
It’s really quick and easy.
1. cd /etc/httpd/conf
2. vi httpd.conf
3. add the following lines to the file. I would suggest you find the AddType area and add it there. It just makes things easier. Just type “/AddType”
AddType video/x-ms-asf asf asx
AddType audio/x-ms-wma wma
AddType audio/x-ms-wax wax
Now, just save the file and you’re done.
Remember to type the following:
service httpd restart
This actually restarts the apache server and makes it all work. Congrats! You can now stream windows media!
