Downloading and configuring the H264 Streaming Module for Internet Information Services IIS 7



Download the H264-Streaming-Module for IIS 7.

Configuration IIS 7 (Windows Vista)

By default, IIS 7.0 is not installed on Windows Vista. You can install IIS by clicking Windows Features in Advanced Options under Programs in Control Panel.

When running Windows 32 bit:

  • Create an App_Code folder, if you don't already have one, in c:\inetpub\wwwroot.
  • Copy the Mod-H264-Streaming module (mod_h264_streaming.dll) into this directory (c:\inetpub\wwwroot\app_code).

When running Windows 64 bit:

Open up IIS Manager.

  • Select 'MIME types'.
  • Select 'Add'.
  • Set 'File name extension' to '.mp4' and 'MIME type' to 'video/mp4'.
  • Click 'OK'.
  • Select 'Modules'.
  • Select 'Configure Native Modules'.
  • Select 'Register'.
  • Set 'Name' to 'ModH264Streaming'.
  • Set 'Path' to the path where the mod_h264_streaming.dll is located.
  • Click 'OK'.
  • Click 'OK' again.
  • Select Handler Mappings.
  • Select 'Add Module Mapping'.
  • Set 'Request Path' to '*.mp4'.
  • Set 'Module' to 'ModH264Streaming'.
  • Set 'Name' to 'ModH264Streaming'.
  • Click 'Request Restrictions'.
  • Set 'Mappings' to 'Invoke handler only if request is mapped to file'.
  • Set 'Verbs' to 'All verbs'.
  • Set 'Access' to 'Scripts'. (Note to self: verify why this was previously 'Execute').
  • Click 'OK'.
  • Click 'OK' again.

The module now appears under the 'Enabled' Handler Mappings.
