I wouldn't recommend what you are doing by you do that, your server is at a security risk. I would do that on a separate computer then transfer to the server.

windows 2008 r2 server isn't built to do it only store data.

Hi, thanks for your reply, i agree with u , but my client is looking for a procedure which should mimic like youtube , upload video in webpage which should convert into .mp4 format so that it can play in webpages and mobile fones as well.so what i did was to upload the video and i would call the uploaded video ad convert it to .mp4 format, btw am using ffmpeg to convert. so in this case my video gets upload but cannot convert them as it pops access denied error. pls advice.

HI , i fixed up the error might help others when playing with ffmpeg, so what i wen twrong was in vitrual dir so again created a new virtual dir with full access permission for anonymous user and upload the video files and also the ffmpeg source , my prob was with ffmpeg exe file the access was denied as it was under admin control copied it inside my vitual folder so that made sense. :)
