MS bought their way into the Silverlight installs in the just-ended Olympics
This is just phase 2 of many, as they try to buy this market, too.

No idea what that Move Networks thing is, the olympics coverage did not require it.

NOTE! that http://www.msnbc.com/
is streaming it all live, in Flash.    Works fine on all platforms.

If you go to the demconvention.com site and want to see the video being
streamed, you are told:


     For the best Democratic Convention video experience, you'll need
     the Microsoft Silverlight plug-in and the Move Networks media
     player.

"best" being 'other than blank'

     We're sorry, but the Democratic Convention video web site isn't
     compatible with your operating system and/or browser.



I wonder what the Elephant folks are doing next week...
