Sothink Video Encoder for Adobe Flash under Windows 2008 Server

Need help getting the Sothink Video Encoder for Adobe Flash working under W2K8 or W2K8 R2 server?

Here is how to properly configure your server:

  1. Install the Sothink Video Encoder for Adobe Flash software and register it using your registration key.
  2. In the destination folder for the videos, you will need to grant {machinename}\IUSR full control.
  3. the MyRequest.dll file (for ASP) won’t work properly, so if you are using ASP, you will need to use some other method to upload files to the server.  One good choice is ASPUPLOAD.COM
  4. Presuming you have already setup a site under the IIS 7.5 management tool, you need to change the pool to LOCAL SYSTEM.  Do this by locating the application pool for this site, then click ADVANCED SETTINGS (on the right nav) and under PROCESS MODEL, for Identity, select LOCALSYSTEM
  5. Click OK to close out of the property page above, then click RECYCLE
  6. You will need to grant scripts and executables property to the site.  It’s different under IIS 7 and IIS 7.5 to do this… so on the site home, open HANDLER MAPPINGS, and click “edit feature permissions” and check execute.  Then click OK and exit out.
  7. I would advise at this point to restart IIS on this box by clicking the server name and then RESTART in the right nav.
  8. If you’ve done all the above properly, you should have no problems encoding videos using Sothink Video Encoder for Adobe Flash on a Windows 2008 server.
