Starlight MIME type definition required on web server?

Sep 11, 2009 at 7:34 PM

We ran some tests yesterday, attempting to view a multicast stream on OSX with Silverlight/Starlight installed; had no luck, the embedded video on the web page failed to play.

Does using starlight require a MIME type (e.g., x-vnd-starlight-proxy) to be set up on the IIS server?

No, it is not necessary to add that mime type to the server.  The mime type is needed purely because the Mozilla plugin mechanism requires it.  What web browser are you using that is giving difficulty?  Safari or Firefox?
