Swarmcast partners with Silverlight
Whether you're so burned out by the format war that you've sworn off physical media entirely or you want the instant gratification that only internet distribution can provide, you've probably heard about Swarmcast before. The company has great plans for HD internet video delivery and has shown some "proof of concept" with its Autobahn HD player for Flash. This week at Microsoft's web-centric MIX08 conference, Swarmcast announced that it is also partnering with Microsoft's Silverlight. Only time will tell if Silverlight's cross-platform reach will be enough to make it serious competition for Flash, but Microsoft's platform is gaining momentum.
