see, i've a really slow internet so I never tried streaming videos using this kind of connection. but recently when I accidentally entered the live streaming of windows 8, I was able to do that. plus i like the full screen mode of silverlight (turns my whole desktop into a TV screen where i can do the things i want, and still stream live.) so, I wonder maybe this time i could already watch Chris' stream, and other streams using silverlight, but I DON't Know the URL and I don't know any other site that uses silverlight for live streaming. do you know any site that streams cable-tv content into silverlight? like soccer, and other Tv shows?

we don't have cable tv here, it;s local so, i don;t watch it. thanks!

No offsense but why would you even want any type of Virtualization in the browser (Flash, Unity, Java and Silverlight (and others)) I'd rather have HTML5 support than any type of virtual engine.

Chris channel is based of UStream Streaming service and it is based on flash. The flash client has a full screen mode already

There is also a HTML5 version but for mac and iOS only currently

yah,., i know but it exits when I open a window. have you tried, silverlight?. i mean, i can multi-task while it's on full screen.

remember where the Desktop background is located? that's where the program places the video stream. and sadly, flash can't load the stream as efficiently as silverlight did with mine,. maybe for you guys with faster internet speed,. but for me it just don't work.

i kept on seeing the loading gif. and nothing... :(

Bing video is all using Silverlight (Silverlight and Bing are both from MS). I don't know if you would be able to stream any live feeds from Bing but if you are looking for a YouTube-esque experience using Silverlight, it is a decent alternative.

are the data between flash and silverlight so different that one can't play the other's content?
