I was just on www.tsn.ca and I was about to watch some sports highlights and it asked me to install Microsoft Silverlight. I had never heard of this program before and I was wondering if someone here could provide some review for this new piece of software from Microsoft.

Thanks in advance.

Sort of like Microsoft's version of Adobe's Flash.

I can't wait for Silverlight 1.1 which supports DRM. That's what Netflix is waiting for to finally have a Mac solution for watching downloaded movies.

Right, because life simply would not be complete without a competing Microsoft product for every product that's ever been made. Can't wait for MS-Toilet-Paper </sarcasm>


Liquid and computers don't mix. It might seem simple, but we see an incredible amount of people post here about spills. Keep drinks and other liquids away from your expensive electronics!

Sarcasm or sad reality?

Let's try it (i'm bored)...

Just downloaded Silverlight and well I'm not impressed. I am not saying it is a terrible product but it doesn't do anything special for me. Just another nuisance having to install another piece of software. Life isn't perfect.

Nothing negative to report as of today.

The Netflix demostration looks very good, i still choose to rent/buy the DVD for the extra features, this seems to integrate all very well. After looking at the resources it seems like you don't need a specific program to make the animations, that is good IMHO.

Is anyone having problems getting the Silverlight plug-in installed for Firefox 2? I installed Silverlight, but it's only detected as installed on Safari, but I'm a FF user

A lot of the radio station streams require Silverlight, but I'd prefer not to install another app. Is there any way around using Silverlight? And if there isn't, have any of you had problems with it?

I'm having issues with Silverlight, too. I'm trying to watch the NCAA DIII Soccer Finals today and it keeps asking me to reinstall Silverlight over and over. Annoying.

Are you on 10.5 or 10.6?

10.6 installs Silverlight as part of it's default installation.

First thing I'd try would be to delete the Silverlight preference files - two of them, located at:

Users / youruser / Preferences / com.Microsoft.Silverlight....

Just move them to the desktop, log out and back in, give it another try.

I cannot be held responsible for the things that come out of my mouth.
In the Windows world, most everything folks don't understand is called a virus.
