My first Windows Vista Sidebar Gadget has been published to gallery.live.com. This gadget wraps the Windows Media Player and allows for the playing of any video stream, file and URL that is compatible with Windows Media Player (did you know that the player can play flash video also like You Tube, etc.?). You can even make playlists in Windows Media Player and play those through the gadget.
