Video Carousel – Silverlight 1.0 RC

Some of my colleagues will be more than a little surprised to see me blogging about Silverlight… It's a great technology, don't get me wrong, but on my team I'm better known for my passion of PowerShell and things plumbing related… certainly not web, graphics and video! Alas, despite the potentially gratuitous use of video and graphics, I had a need for demonstrating Silverlight and the MediaElement for a community service project I'm working on. Intrigued by an earlier version of a Silverlight video carousel I found on Lester's blog, I decided to update this for the Silverlight 1.0 Release Candidate (RC).

p.s. It was also fun to do ;-). Preview static image below, the source is attached.

    Hi Brajesh,

    You might need to uninstall the version of WPF/E (now called Silverlight) on your machine, and then install the released version and try again.

    The uninstall is usually launched from Control Panel’s Programs (or Add/Remove Programs) list.  If you don’t find an option to remove WPF/E or Silverlight there, please ping us back here.
