In the Open Media menu, select the media file you want to stream using the Add button then the click the Stream button on the bottom right corner of the menu box.

It will show the Source,since we have already set this , Hit Next.

The destinations Menu has the following items.
  • File
  • HTTP
  • RTSP
  • RTP / MPEG-Transport 
  • RTP Audio/Video profile
  • UDP(legacy)
  • IceCast
There select the one you want, if you are streaming over web , HTTP or RTSP  is the best!
Now lets do it using RTSP.

Select RTSP and Click Add
Keep the port number unchanged or if you are a geek you know how to use it!(localhost:xxxx)
Now in the path add any if you want or keep the same.
(Remember the path must have only / and NOT \)

In the Transcoding options, check Active Transcoding and click on the add new profile button (the third button).
For Windows Media Player(8-12).
In the name field type Windows Media Player.
In the encapsulation,select AVI (recommended) or ASF/WMV.
In the video tab, check Video and again select the same you selected in Step One in the codec menu,leave others intact.
In the Audio tab,check Audio and select Codec to MP3.Leaves others unchanged.
Now hit the Save button and your are done!.(Just Kidding)
