        yes Microsoft please bring back windows media services. it was a much needed service for companies to be able to stream events and broadcast internal messages.

        I installed Windows Server 2016 Essentials and try to set Media Server role based on the description below.
        [Get started with Windows Server 2016 Essentials] -> [Manage Digital Media in Windows Server Essentials 2016] -> [Turn media dtreaming on or off]
        https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/windows-server-essentials/manage/manage-digital-media-in-windows-server-essentials#BKMK_4
        However, there is no "Media" tab in the [Dashboard]-[Settings] page.
        Does anyone let me know how to enable Media Server role in Windows Server Essentials 2016?
        Before installing 2016, I have been using Windows Server 2012 Essentials and it has been working as Media Server (DLNA).
        regards,
        Hiroshi

        It's a need for a lot of us as far as I can read around on several forums.
        Why when we go to official Microsoft website, a media pack is valid to download 2012 R2 and 2016, when we try to install, the media pack is not valid for 2016 ?

        A reply from microsoft server 2016 development team would be greatly apreciated by a number of users

        Thx
