Header scripts are added when you know how many scripts you have and their location before you start the conversion. Also, since they are stored in the header, they will need to be all downloaded before playback begins.

Stream scripts are added when you don't know how many you will have or when there are too many and you don't want to slow down the start of the playback. For example, if you save the output of a live capture as WMV and there are certain notifications that you will receive during the capture, you would use stream scripts.To save this data (since you will not know the location before you start capturing.

Although header scripts cannot be processed with IltmmPlay notifications, they can be handled by Media Player. To process the scripts using a player based on IltmmPlay, you should add Stream Scripts using the IltmmWMScript::WriteScriptStream function.

See the Microsoft help topic, Using Script Commands Supported by Windows Media Player, for a complete list of script commands supported by Windows Media Player.
