Hi there - long time reader, first time poster, hoping for some help
We have a Windows 2003 Server with Media Services installed.
What we want to do is run a online streaming tv channel 24/7. Most of the content would be pre-recorded with a few hours live each week. And we are looking for some kind of scheduling software. I know Media Services has some sort of playlist creator but isn't really advanced I don't think.
We really want to be able to schedule by time and category if possible. So that we could have different categories of programmes stored on the server (maybe in different folders to distinguish them) and then be able to say:
midnight: category/folder 1
1am: category/folder 2
2am: category/folder 3
etc etc, any it randomly takes a file from the folder and plays it. And then be able to slot in when necessary a live feed to be taken from an encoded stream.
Were open to any ideas at this stage and would value anything
