Trying out Silverlight Streaming, while it's still there!
I've been trying out Microsoft's streaming platform for the Cloud, "Silverlight Streaming". It's one of a range of cool services Microsoft has been considering for Windows Live, alongside SkyDrive, MS Office Apps, Hotmail, Spaces, etc, etc.
Try it now -- it's free!
Despite the name, there's more to this than Silverlight. It's a cool way store, host and stream media, and host Silverlight applications..
It was only a trial, and a version of the service will eventually be moving to a permanent home on Azure. So try it out in your next mashup or hack day, while you still can!
Video player example: using 1 line of HTML embed code generated by Silverlight Streaming on Live.com
[Update: the demo no longer works on the old URL, it has all been moved over to Azure where it's bigger and better than before!]
