    Very simple. See the installer download page:

    To play your first stream see the VOD tutorial:

    Also read the Quick Start Guide for an overview and the User Guide both found here:

    I've followed the quick start guide; I'm reinstalling on another server so I have some experience but I still get confused! It looks too simple.

    Anyway, a couple of questions:

    1. Can you direct me to the test software you use, to check connections?

    2. I loaded the following San Jose stream type: (obviously changing to my addresses)

    I got this within my browser:

    This XML file does not appear to have any style information associated with it. The document tree is shown below.
    <manifest xmlns="">
    <media streamId="1" bootstrapInfoId="bootstrap0" bitrate="122" url="media_b125000_w2002544210.abst/"></media>

    Does this suggest that I'm almost there?

    Running Windows 2008 r2. I currently have IIS installed. Will this interfere with some of the streams, particularly port 80? If so, can you point in the direction to remedy this (disable IIS?)

    You can check current (real-time) connections with these HTTPProviders:

    Or afterward using logs

    You need a player to playback streams. The manifest links to the audio and video chunks that the player uses. There is no style info involved. For sanjosestreaming, take a look at Flash Media Playback player
