Media Streaming and Storage

Media Storage Accounts are provided for storage of audio & video media files. Windows Media (WMV) files stored on a Media Storage Account can be viewed with the Windows Media Player on Windows computers, or using the free Flip4Mac player on Macintoshes.

There is no per-stream or other direct cost associated with streaming of stored video files. However, there may be a cost associated with storing those video files.
