Remarks

 

Creates a casting session in WMA format to a publishing point of a Windows Media Server for the output of the given loopback device.

The usage of this method allows sending to a publishing point of a Windows Media Server any sound being played through an audio endpoint device by any application running inside the system.

 

After creating the casting session, you can start it through the CastingStart method.

 

This method is only intended for usage with Windows Vista and later versions.

 

Further information about management of casting sessions can be found inside the How to use the control as a source for streaming servers like SHOUTcast tutorial.
