    Ah, I see the problem. Thanks, fixed for 0.5.1.
    Could you upload your WebMediaPortal.log and Service.log too?
    That error means that the client disconnected from the stream... I'm not really sure why it seems to happen a lot while streaming over the internet, but I don't think I can easily fix this.

    But Direct streaming was working in 0.43. This is the Killer Feature for me and i think to most others.
    Recordings working / TV Streaming working via Flash is also working.

    For smooth Transcoding my CPU ( i5 ) is not enough. But my Upload of 30Mbps is big enough for Direct.
    So something new in 0.50 has broken it.

    Proxied vs. Direct has nothing todo with transcoding... When proxied mode is used, the stream is "proxied" through a WebMP webpage so that the MPExtended service doesn't have to be exposed to the outside.

    That´s clear. So would this mean if i set the Direct Mode ( MPservice ) without Proxy ... i have also to open Port 4322 to get it working ?

    Yes.

    I'm actually not sure Direct mode will work from the outside anyway, as it might create a link to the local IP.

    For Proxied mode, the code that does the stream proxying hasn't changed since 0.4.3, so I doubt that there is any problem there. I think IIS handles WebMP 0.5 a bit differently and closes the connection earlier. I'll try to reproduce it.

    Yes, also the address that you are using in webmp for mpextended must be the EXTERNAL one. And many home routers cannot route external addresses from within the network.

    How this should work ? I have ( and 99% of the users ) NAT enabled. So only Port-Forwarding is possible. That is not enough ?

    Thank you for the great update that was long-awaited. After trying it out, I have a few questions:

    I have a dual seat setup with tv-server on LAN and one frontend PC connected to Internet. I have MP extended and webmediaportal running on both systems so I can access from either lan or the Internet, but ran into a couple of problems. I can't access "direct" stream profile from outside the LAN so when I'm not home I need to use a encoded stream. This gives lower quality and my tv-server can't encode fast enough and playback is choppy. Is there a way to make direct streaming possible through the Internet and/or have the high-end "frontend" PC do the encoding, rather than the low power tv-server?

    Looks like Jelmo is asking about the same thing, so I'm gonna read the above now carefully :)

    With port forwarding, you have to set stream type to Proxied and it should work. However, some people experience a lot of client disconnects then, of which I'm not sure whether they are caused by IIS (Express), WebMediaPortal, the router or the client. I'll try to reproduce it.

    Direct streaming *SHOULD* be available through the Internet, but there is the problem of the client disconnects I described above. Offloading transcoding to another server might be added in 0.6.

    Any chance to get a better streamtransfer? - my upload is not the best with 750kbit/s, so i am not able to get a stream without any interruptions.
    I am thinking of a kind of "big" preload puffer, you puffer 10 minutes or something like this and than you can start watching without interuptions until you cross the puffer zone.

    Anyway today i made my first internet live tv watching session, woke up my server @ home, logged in into WebMP, started a prg and everything worked.
    When i think about the technical background - wake up the server, start a website with your stuff, start a movie or live tv, server starts data compression and sends me the stuff arround the world .. awesome :D
