Hi everyone,

i want to know whether .Net framework 3.0 supports audio and video streaming. Would it be possible to develop such application with WinFX.

there isnt difference between .NET 2.0 and .NET 3.0 in that no additional "core" functionality has been added. The difference being that you can use Avalon/Indigo/WPF etc... however this is only supported mostly in Windows Vista I think, but could be wrong.

So this forum is specifically about Media Foundation, which is the new multimedia API on Windows Vista. On Vista, Media Foundation will not include a WinFX API. As for what .Net APIs people are using for AV streaming, your best bet would be to try our media newsgroups (http://www.microsoft.com/communities/newsgroups/en-us/default.aspx) and find out what others in the community have been using.

Thanks,

Becky

So is there any reason to upgrade right now Do you think it will eventually be installed automatically by Windows Update

no .NET Framework is installed automatically by WU but this is listed as an optional component.

Windows XP SP2 ships with .NET Framework 1.1 as does Windows Server 2003. Windows Vista ships with .NET 3.0 as standard so currently its your call on what you would like to do. I would still dev apps in .NET 2.0 until say another 4 months then move onto .NET 3.0

at the end of the day if someone runs your app and it requires a .NET Framework version, then its best to have it installed with your app than to "bypass" or ignore your application. At some stage, .NET will have to be installed on the computer to run other .NET apps too!
