    hey ben.... related to this im sure you knew about the netflix going hd stuff but i really think you or somebody should take whatever profile netflix is using and put out a trailer or a sample video so people can see what the quality will be like.  ive heard its going to be around a 5.0 mbit stream and the closest thing ive been able to find is your 2.0 mbit leaving las vegas trailer.... 

    i think it could be a really cool marketing thing to get something out showing silverlight @ netflix HD streaming quality.

    Silverlight not loading DRM video on mac intel

    hello, i'm having troubles with silverlight (Version 2.0 (2.0.31005.0)). The plugin works fine, except for "DRM" video, like "http://www.nbcolympics.com/video/index.html" and "netflix watch instantly". The area where the video should load is completely blank. I've reinstalled multiple times, deleted all related files, reinstalled, restarted, repaired permissions, loaded a new user account, changed my network security settings to allow everything to pass through, etc. When i goto silverlight preferences (right clicking), DRM is enabled, but the application storage window doesn't have any websites listed, and from what i understand both NBC and NETFLIX should be listed there. Mac 10.5.5 - all applications and system completely updated tried in both safari and firefox - both up to date. Hardware Overview: Model Name: Mac Pro Model Identifier: MacPro3,1 Processor Name: Quad-Core Intel Xeon Processor Speed: 3.2 GHz Number Of Processors: 2 Total Number Of Cores: 8 L2 Cache (per processor): 12 MB Memory: 12 GB

    OK, figured out what the issue was - my system was not loading the correct version of arial, and thus wouldn't load the the plugin... solved
