Last week when I was at MIX07, I got to sit down and do a Channel 9-style video interview with Tim Sneath, technical evangelist for Silverlight at Microsoft. The video turned out really well, and I just posted it up over at the Intel Software Network blog:
If you’re at all interested in what Silverlight is (Tim gives a great explanation!), what you can do with it, whether it will ever be released for Linux, how it performs, what you need to use it (hint: a text editor), and lots more, you’ll enjoy the video.
It’s about 40 minutes long, but I posted an index of the topics we talk about and their timecodes, so you can jump around. And I was super impressed at how great the video looks and how small the Quicktime file turned out. The video was shot in 1080i HD originally, and encoded at 640×360 using iMovie. The resulting file is only 93MB (I was expecting hundreds)! I credit the tripod for this – there’s not a lot of motion from frame to frame, so the H.264 compression really shines.
Anyway, please do go check it out, tell your friends, and let me know what you think!
