Windows Live Tools for Visual Studio 2008

The Windows Live Team put up a neat bunch of controls that can be used in your ASP.NET Websites.  In fact once you install the Windows Live Tools for Visual Studio 2008 from http://dev.live.com/tools/ you get a few server controls in the toolbox as well as website templates for Visual Studio 2008 project/website.

I wanted to demonstrate how you can quickly add a video to your website that is being streamed from the Silverlight Streaming Service, all within 5 minutes.

Pre-requisites

1. Visual Studio 2008 or Visual Web Developer Expression Edition

2. Windows Live Tools for Visual Studio 2008 (http://dev.live.com/tools/)

3.  Your video uploaded to Silverlight Streaming Service

          i. Visit http://silverlight.live.com

          ii. Sign-in using your Live ID/Hotmail/Passport

          iii. Click on "Get it Free" Icon

          iv.  Click on "I accept Terms and Conditions"

           v.  You would receive an Account ID and Account Key (GUID ID)

          vi.  Note them for your reference for now.  You would also be able to view it every time you login.

          vii. Click on "Manage Videos" in the left

          viii. Click "Upload Video" to provide a video title as well as uploading the video.

 

Adding your uploaded video into ASP.NET Website

1. Create a File - New - ASP.NET Windows Live Website

2. From the ToolBox under "Windows Live" Tab, drag and drop "SilverlightStreamingMediaPlayer" into the page

3. Click on the smart tag ">" on the Top right of the SilverlightLightStreamingMediaPlayer control in design view.

4. Click on the tab next to the URL textbox in the "SillverlightStreamingMediaPlayer Tasks" wizard.

5. It prompts you with a dialog for providing the Account ID and the Account Key.

6. You would need to provide the same that you acquired from the steps in pre-requisites above.

7. Click on "List" and it will provide a  list of the videos uploaded by you to the Streaming Service already.

8. Select the video and click "Ok" to add it to the page.

9. You are all set to play your streaming video in your ASP.NET Website.


Cheers !!!

When using the current version of Windows Live Tools with Visual Studio 2008 final version, you must modify the Web.config file for any construction project in ASP.NET using the Windows Live Web Site template.
