Silverlight Video Overview
Microsoft Silverlight is a cross-browser, cross-platform plug-in for delivering rich interactive applications and video for the web. You can insert pre-existing Silverlight video into a page, or you can encode other kinds of video into Silverlight and insert the encoded video into a page.
The Insert Silverlight video feature requires Microsoft Expression Encoder, which is installed with Microsoft Expression Web. Expression Encoder is used to encode video and to provide video skins. In addition to the streaming web playback format, Expression Encoder can encode in other formats, including H.264 and WMV for podcasts.
The full version of Expression Web includes a copy of Expression Encoder. If you have acquired Expression Web as a trial version, you can download Expression Encoder from the Expression Community site.
