Silverlight(TM) for the Silver Screen.
View our other work with Microsoft's Silverlight.

Video websites are lots of fun, but setting up your own video community website can be a real headache. There's a lot to worry about: disk space, bandwidth, video formats and encoding...

 

That's why we built a reference quality site which does all of the hard work for you. The key is Silverlight technology paired up with Silverlight Streaming's free, world class content hosting. Video.Show provides Silverlight 1.0 video controls, Silverlight Streaming hosting integration, leveraging Expression Encoder's ability to handle most popular video formats. We’ve set things up so you can be uploading videos within minutes, and we’ve added in some cool features like time-based video comments, so your comments will be synchronized with the video playback.
