 ASFv2 Straw Man
ASF is similarly agnostic about how the data is packetized by network protocols (for example, whether the multimedia data is sent in an interleaved or non-interleaved fashion).
Stream prioritization is complicated by the presence of scalable media types, since it is not always possible to determine the order of stream application at authoring time.
Streams in a mutual exclusion relationship with each other (for example, languages) should all be listed in adjacent order (in other words, priority n, n+1, n+2, and so on), sorted in decreasing order of maximum stream bandwidth.

Windows Media Encoder is a real time encoder that can be used to produce video streams for streaming over a network from a standard web server or specialised server software or alternatively video can be rendered in real time directly to disk as an ASF stream.
