Mike Sampson talks about building a Silverlight player for Ch9

September 26, 2007

I just posted a video on Channel 9 of my interview with Mike Sampson, the tallest member of the EvNet dev team.  Other than collecting LEGOs and adding them to his desk collection, he also spends a lot of time in the media pipeline for the EvNet sites which include Channel 8, 9 and 10 and MIX Online.

In order to improve the experience of the playback of these videos while removing a step from the encoding process, Mike has been working on a Silverlight player the different sites.  He covers how he was able to reuse code from Expression Encoder and what customizations he had to write himself.

Thanks for the hard work, Sampy!  Can’t wait to embed a player in my post rather than just posting an image with a link :)
