Explanation (?):

The Windows Media Station Service is a Media Player 9 server service that provides streaming media across the Internet. If you are runnning a streaming media server then this service should be left on automatic. My guess is that this service acts as a mechanism for differentiating several active streams so that a single server can provide multiple media streams. If you know the exact nature of this service then please contact me.
