  • Larry Hryb - First look at Xbox 360 (with the MVPs)

    Do you know what is wrong with the Xbox when the LED around the (current) xbox flashes orange and green? 


    That your modchip is not installed correct?Big Smile

    Is the red xbox360 power led fastly blinking or is that because of the video record?

    Remote control looks sweet!
  • Sean Alexander (and others) - Windows Vista Sidebar and Gadgets

    This widescreen thing is a very good argument. Because most of the time it is just extra unneeded space which can easly be filled up with a sidebar. But let's say I have a widescreen convertable tabletPC, they will probaly arrive somewhere in the near future. Will I be able to automaticly turn off the sidebar (or put it to hide and show when mouse is close) when I switch from normal laptop mode to tabletPC mode?

    Because when you switch there is no more extra screen space on the side of the screen, because it is now at the bottom of the screen.

  • Clipster is here!

    The correct answer is the latter.  We save the start and endtime and then we tell the streaming video where to start and how long to play.  Really a testament to how cool the streaming technology is.

    Hi erik_,

    Yes, in V2 you will be able to add comments to your clips.

    The record mechanism is not recording video and saving a file. It is recording time points (start and end times) and storing those values. To view the clip, we set the inline player's url to our ASX auto-generator page, which builds ASX content that incorporates your clip title, start time and duration (end time - start time), and location of the original streaming file (located on the MS streaming sever cluster). MMS is such a great technology. You tell the media streamer where to start and and how long to last and, bingo, you got a streaming clip. Super fast seek. I'm proud of our streaming technologies group. Great work!

    This is just changed my world, wonderfull technology. An so simple idea, but a powerhouse when it is working.

    Is anything like this possible with other formats like realmedia or is windows media the only format that allows this to be build simple? And with simple I mean just using the technology availible and not building a compete house around realmedia to let the format support the seek in the stream.

    I love the streaming technologies group!
  • Clipster is here!

    Whoh, AMAZING AMAZING AMAZING feature.

    Is it also possible to add comments to the clipping next to the tags? So a person is able to add some comments to the clipping about why he clipped that part. So for example you have the tags: Channel9 and Clipster and as comments: this is how you record a clipping or here they display how to add a clipping to your profile, etc.

    Is the record application making a copy of the video or is it pointing to timepoints in the original video and just fast fowards to these parts on clipping view request?


  • North Face Demo at the PDC

    Look at the title of the white paper, "The North Face In-Store Explorer Proof-of-Concept: A White Paper". This is not something they use on there internet site, but on there in-store units. Probaly foot stands with a touch screen or something like that.

    The power and things that can be done look amazing, and it's just so so cool. Only do you need to use this amount of power for a regular application? It's probaly only a small group of people that will benefit from this power, but maby in the future there will be more...

    Seconly, I don't understand this idea. Why in the world would I go watch movies in a store, I don't want to spend that much time to do my shopping. And most of the times the audio experience is bad, because of background noise or bad/turned down speakers.

    I would rather see a little less powerfull website, that just gives me a list of movies instead of 3d rotating movies. So I can do some pre-shopping, compare the product with other products from maby other brands, while I am relaxing and feel I got time to do some comparing of products, read users reviews, etc.
  • Julie Larson-Green - Diving into the new Office 12

    Wonderfull product. Loved the demonstration, because the picture only view on the press release looked so so useless. Like WTF did they do to office, but when you see it moving and menu's are updating, etc. IT'S AMAZING HANDY!!!

    Does the 'flowdy' comes with functions most people use or with features I use a lot? Like when I never use I but always use striketrue will the I disapear and the striketrue button come in the menu? But then only the functions that apply to the selected text.

    How does the office team thinks about the problem with the people that just press enter all the time, not knowing the difference between enter and shift-enter?

    Like:

    Hello
    Line2
    Line3
    Line4
    (emptyline)

    will end up as:

    <para>Hello</para>
    <para>Line2</para>
    <para>Line3</para>
    <para>Line4</para>
    <para></para>

    Instead of what it looks like to the user:

    <para>Hello <enter>
    Line2
    Line3
    Line4</para>

    I see this kind of mess a lot from teachers and students using word. And I don't wanna know what happends when the autoformating functions start formating that mess.

    Again, Thanks for the demo it rocked to see it live, the power of c9
  • Bill Gates - A short chat with Microsoft's Chief Software Architect

    Great!!

    Still downloading but the download link points to marc_mcdonald_employee_one_2005.wmv video is this correct?

  • Brent Hill and Roger Grimes - Chatting about IIS 7's security

    for a few seconds yes, which was pretty dumb because now all the replays are about IE6.
    And IIS well, he also talked about that but hey, you can't complain about that because it's to damn good or ?

    Great video, it would be nice to actualy see a video with a active directory setup and a good linux setup and actually see the difference in deployement. It's a bit of a weird question probaly, but to get a good view of what really are the problems you need to see them yourself. (And I am too lazy to do it myself)
  • Michael Rys - XML in SQL Server

    Hmm, I quickly skipped to the demo, because I don't got time atm to view the full video. They learn me at school to normalize everything, and with this xml insert this isn't happening or ?... should I just watch the full video tommorow?

    There was construction happening on the floor above us. Strange sound, no? Wonder what they were working on...

    Lol, viewing the wmv at the moment and I was wondered what the harddrive on the background was doing and how large that pc was which made the noise. But it's construction.
