Silverlight: Cross Platform Media Plugin

Over at the Backstage at MED Blog I see this post about Silverlight - which looks to be a browser plug-in that allows you to view Windows Media over the web, much like the ubiquitous flash plug-in. What's great about Silverlight, though, it that it's heavily cross-platform, supporting IE, Firefox, Safari, and - here's the exciting part, Windows Mobile.

Why so exciting? Well, it looks like Microsoft has lined up a bevy of partners who will be using the technology to stream video and other media. The partner I'm most excited about: Netflix. They already have a movie download service that I can't access on my Mac, but being to someday access that on my Mac and especially on my WM devices more than makes up for that.

Today at the 2007 National Association of Broadcasters conference (NAB2007), Microsoft Corp. unveiled Microsoft® Silverlight™, a new cross-browser, cross-platform plug-in for delivering the next generation of media experiences and rich interactive applications (RIAs) for the Web. Early supporters of the new platform include Akamai Technologies Inc., Brightcove Inc., Eyeblaster Inc., Limelight Networks, Major League Baseball and Netflix Inc.
