Islands of Richness with Silverlight on an ASP.NET page

I stumbled across this great tutorial by Brad Adams, titled ‘Islands of Richness with Silverlight on an ASP.NET page‘. Step by step it walks you¬†through using and customising the ASP.NET MediaPlayer control and shows your how¬†video can be added to an ASP.NET website.

Addendum: On the subject of Silverlight, this is an interesting development from Microsoft.



I attended the Microsoft Mix:UK event in London recently (11 – 12 September). During the various sessions, .NET 3.5, Silverlight and the Live APIs were all heavily showcased. The highlights of the two day event were the sessions lead by Scott Guthrie, a manager within Microsoft’s Developer Division, who showed how to build Silverlight applications within .NET, and the lovely free “thank you” gifts from Microsoft: full copies of Windows Vista Ultimate and Expression Studio! Now I just need a more powerful PC to install them on.

Hopefully they will be posting videos of the sessions I missed in the very near future.
