We need a component that will check Windows Media Streaming service for performance. Component will expect two arguments as input:
· URL string (URL)
· Streaming time in seconds (X) as input.
Component should connect to Streaming Server and start streaming content. After streaming for X seconds component will disconnect from the server and return connection time, buffering time, frame rate and throughput of the streaming content. It will also report how many times it connects/disconnects during X seconds, buffering time for each connect, and buffering time if it had to buffer while streaming. Component should be written .NET 1.1 using C#. Component should work with mp3, m3u, .wav, and .wma. Component should be apartment-threaded, so we will be able to start and run multiple instances of this media stream checker component from the same executable. Please, provide timeline for implementation as part of the bid.
