Synchronize Media Points

  • When you click on the Synchronize button a synchronization of the MPMLite database and your Windows Media Services takes place and the Media Point Status of each Media Point is updated accordingly.
  • The different States for a Media Point are:
    • Not Found - Media Points that exists in MPMLite's database, but have been removed from the Windows Media Server. It is usually a good idea to delete them. They are marked in Red.
    • Incomplete - Media Points that exists on the Windows Media Server, but not in the MPMLite database. They are marked in White.
    • OK - Media Points that exist on both the Windows Media Server and in the MPMLite database. They are marked in Green.

Delete a Media Point

  • Media Points with the "Not Found" status can be deleted from the MPMLite database by clicking on the Remove button next to them.
  • Deleting a Media Point with status "Incomplete" or "OK" will only remove them from the MPMLite database. They will still have to be manually removed from the Windows Media Server as well. To delete click on the Edit button next to the Media Point. The Media Point's details will display in the Mediapoint Details box. Click on the Remove button in the box.

Update a Media Point

  • Click on the Edit button next to the Media Point that you want to update. The Media Point's details will display in the Mediapoint Details box. Change the User Name and/or User Password and click on the Update button.

Note: The Media Point Name can not be updated.


  • See illustration below for Update and Delete

Statistic Relay

What is a Statistic Relay?

The statistic relay grabs the current status and viewer count from the stream hosting server. In the case of Windows Media Services the server must be running MPM or MPMLite to obtain statistics.

With a valid statistic relay you may also list your station on AudioRealm.com with a few additional steps. Listing your station at Audiorealm.com means you will get added exposure and you won't miss extra listeners coming from the AudioRealm portal and partner sites. For more information on listing your station at AudioRealm.com click here .
