Creating Custom Plug-ins

Creating Custom Plug-ins

Windows Media Services consists of a core set of functionality that can be augmented and modified by the use of plug-ins. You can create the following types of plug-ins for your server.

  • Authentication plug-ins verify the identity of a client.

  • Authorization plug-ins establish a client's rights to access content.

  • Cache proxy plug-ins determine cache and proxy policy.

  • Data source plug-ins retrieve content from a source.

  • Event notification plug-ins handle events raised by the server.

  • Logging plug-ins log client and server information to a specific destination.

  • Playlist parser plug-ins create playlist objects that the server uses to determine what content it must send to a client.
