Valid Extensions

You can not put any type of files you want inside a FileSet. If you do most probably you will receive an error from the Silverlight Streaming server while trying to upload your FileSet.

As the Silverlight Streaming official documentation is poor (it lacks a listing of allowed file extensions) you have to try for yourself in order to find out which file extensions the server likes.

The following is by no mean an exhaustive list but just one build from the files I've tried. Please add your own as you discover them.

Extensions that are allowed:
  • .xaml
  • .xml
  • .jpg
  • .txt
  • .avi

Extensions that ARE NOT allowed:
  • .bmp
  • .cs

It is still a bit poor :) , but at least now a list of files extensions has been added
