Video in a whole new (Silver)Light

TechCrunch has a really interesting review of Microsoft’s new multimedia presentation and services software, Silverlight. I installed Silverlight on my Mac with no problem, and the demos show that this is going to be able to do a lot of neat things. For one thing, it might challenge the ubiquity of Flash. The video quality in the Fantastic Four movie trailer is stunning.

It tells me Web 2.0 might be moving to 2.2 or so, and that standards for web video may be moving up.
