Hi Lavji N. Zala,

Our wiki doesn't mention it explicitly, but it seems that Internet
Information Services (IIS) is a requirement when setting up video
streaming in Greenstone. Unfortunately, IIS is a Microsoft product which
you have to pay for, so it won't be easy to find somewhere to download
it from the internet for free. I believe it comes bundled with some
versions of windows. Check if it is bundled with your version, and if
the version number is high enough (Administrative Tools it the place to
look I think, for windows XP at least). If not, the easiest thing to do
might be to move your Greenstone installation to a computer with a
version of windows that does have IIS 4+ bundled with it.

I hope this helps.
Kind Regards,
