Most of the current media players support playing hosted media files over a network. Assuming the two machines are Windows based you could probably store a video in a folder and share it, then on the second machine try accessing the shared folder and play the video using the preferred video player. To analyze the effects of packet loss set up Wanem in between these two machines and change the routes on these machines such that all traffic routes through Wanem. Change the Wanem settings using the advanced mode (refer the user guide) to reflect the appropriate packet loss, then repeat the test of accessing the video and capture the required information.

Hope this clarifies your doubt.

P.S: Feel free to post the questions in the WANem Support forum, there is an increased chance of getting a reply in the forum.

Dear users,

I am currently working on a project that need to be handed in very soon. The purpose of the project is to study the effect of packet loss on real time voice and video traffic. My intention is to WANem and introduce voice and video traffic betweem two stations . The third station will be running WANem and collect the data I will use for the analysis. Is there anybody who knows how I can include Voice and video traffic on my network.
