Sound, Video, and Deep Zoom

  • Matthew Macdonald


In this chapter, you’ll tackle one of Silverlight’s most mature features: audio and video support. Since version 1.0, Silverlight has distinguished itself as a technology that brings high-end multimedia support to the limited world of the browser. And though Silverlight can’t support the full range of media codecs (because that would multiply the size of the Silverlight download and increase its licensing costs), Silverlight still gives you everything you need to incorporate high-quality audio and video in your applications. Even more remarkable is the way that Silverlight allows you to use multimedia, particularly video. For example, you can use video to fill thousands of elements at once and combine it with other effects, such as animation, transforms, and transparency.
