    Missing magic byte causing Silverlight streamed video to fail

      Hello - we have a client that is unable to view videos we are serving. They are using McAfee Web Gateway on their network and this is blocking our video streams. If they temporarily turn off the McAfee "Magic bytes are necessary" option then the videos play - however they are not prepared to do this as a permanent fix, so I need to find an alternative solution. The video is being served from Windows Azure storage via the Microsoft Content Delivery Network and is in Silverlight adaptive streaming video format - having been encoded using Expression Encoder 4. Does anyone have any ideas how to solve this - i.e. can we do something to the way in which the video is encoded to add the missing "magic byte"?? Thanks Ed.
