What is MMS?
network streaming protocol.
NEWS UPDATE: (27.March 2008)
This is an announcement from the SDP Team - our quest is over!
As from 8th Feb 2008, Microsoft have finally released its MMS protocol specification ! Along with a lot of other documents on their website for all to read and download. We have waited about 7 years for this.
This is a major breakthrough and it basically means the SDP Team no longer needs to continue its work trying to figure out how MMS actually works. That also means there will be no further updates to our MMS protocol specification document.
No further releases of our MMS protocol document will be posted as from now. However, we 'are' continuing with our software development. So expect further software updates as when we can manage them.
So what now?
Continued software development. Free releases, new tools.. All coming along nicely - but maybe slowly.
Of course, Microsoft have now dropped MMS protocol from its media streaming servers and players. Namely, version 11 of Media Player has no MMS ability. So the focus is now on RTSP and HTTP.
SDP downloader will of course continue to support MMS, for legacy servers still in operation today, and probably will still be in operation in the next 2 to 5 years.
current version of SDP does not support RTSP streaming (not yet).
SDP still needs support!
If you like our SDP downloader software,
