Flash Pro (I think) comes with a video converter to convert to flash
video... Plus, I think its pretty easy to load a regular encoded video
into a flash app.

You also could use SilverLight, download the SDK from Microsoft and it
has a built in way to display videos, very similar to flash.

With Silverlight, you encode the video using Expression Media Encoder
(an application by Microsoft), which does almost everything for you. If
you want to host the video yourself, that's about all you have to do.
You can also use a free service provided by Microsoft to host your video
on a streaming server. You get 4GB for free at http://silverlight.live.com

For ASP.NET, you use the "ASP.NET futures" controls, one of them is a
Media control allowing to eaqsily integrate the Silverlight video player
on your ASP.NET web page, including skin customization.

That should get you started!

In the moment, Silverlight supports only WMV and VC1 (which is the codec
used in Blu-Ray HD disks). You can change the source of the movie to
anything you like, but of course that implies some programming. It's not
very difficult to do.

The advantage of using Silverlight to do this instead of Flash is the
very good integration of Silverlight with ASP.NET. The disadvantage is
that Silverlight is not released yet, so you would work with pre-release
code (however Silverlight RC1 has been released last Friday, and
Microsoft promises that there won't be any more breaking changes in the
future, so that shouldn't be too painful).

I hope it helps,
Laurent

Silver ligth is beta software and not ready for production sites.
Adobe Flash is a more tested tecnology.

I bet that, eventually, it will...after the technology matures.

There's tons of features which need to be tested widely,
and perhaps new features to be included...or old/bad ones eliminated.

Give it time...

Because it's still CTP. For the records, the reason why Silverlight 1.0
focuses a lot on video is to spread its installation to a maximum of PCs
in the smallest possible time. Studies have shown that video is the
medium for which the most people accept to install new software. Given
that in optimum conditions, Silverlight can be installed in just a few
seconds, it's going to be available on a lot of PCs soon.

Silverlight is more than just video. Just give it some time and it will
offer a very interesting alternative to Flash, especially for those
(like me) who dislike the Flash designer and prefer to use Visual Studio
for development.

HTH,
Laurent
