Silverlight: Creating Video with Timed Overlays

Sign in to queue

Description

Building off the concept that Tim Sneath published on creating video with overlays, I thought I'd demonstrate handling timed overlays using the media markers of a video file.

In this screencast, we look at Expression Media Encoder and Expression Blend 2 Preview together, demonstrating encoding a file with media markers and then using Silverlight to monitor when those markers are triggered, then perform some animation.

This technique can be useful when re-using media elements across advertising for example, but displaying different messaging, promotional offers, links, languages, or whatever.
