silverlight video extension

Jul 30, 2008 at 11:07 AM
I have been using the silverlight video extension for several months to display a four-minute video.  For the most part, this has worked quite well and I have been satisfied with the video quality.  What's been rather annoying, however, is the lack of support of silverlight for Opera users, and now with Firefox 3.  Yesterday, I did some digging around and found a silverlight fix for the .js file, which I tried by simply copying the entire code and replacing the code in the .js file within the silverlight folder.  Much to my surprise, this fix solved a few issues, and the video now works well with all of the major browsers (Opera, IE7, FF 2 and 3 and Safari)...As a bonus, the extension is now using silverlight 2 instead of 1.  One qualification to make, however, is that I am still using BE 1.3.1.  I do plan to upgrade soon to BE 1.4, but until then...well, perhaps someone could give it a go with the newer BE version and see if the extension works... Oh...you can view our video here.
