Install a supported Windows Server operating system

Plug-ins that support the advanced streaming features in Windows Media Services are only available when Windows Media Services is running on either Windows Server 2008 Enterprise or Windows Server 2008 Datacenter. These plug-ins are not available when Windows Media Services is running on Windows Server 2008 Standard or Windows Web Server 2008. For more information about the Windows Server operating system that will best meet your needs, see Decide which version of Windows Server is right for you.

Install a version of Windows Server 2008 that supports the advanced streaming features in Windows Media Services (either Windows Server 2008 Enterprise or Windows Server 2008 Datacenter), and then install Windows Media Services on the new platform.
