Silverlight made its debut in 2006 with the confusing acronym WPF/E (that’s Windows Presentation Foundation, Everywhere). Indeed the original dream was that a slimmed down version of the .NET Framework could run as a plugin in any browser (including smart phones) and enable developers to wield their weapons of XAML, data-binding, and C# to write line of business apps that would run everywhere. Although it took a few versions to mature, in May of 2011 version 5.0 was released with the features most requested by enterprise users. That was also the year I wrapped up my book about building business
applications with Silverlight, titled Designing Silverlight Business Applications (Addison-Wesley, 2012). In the forward of that book I discussed how the refusal of certain vendors to include the plugin on their smartphones didn’t necessarily mean the demise of Silverlight, but would relegate it to the domain of rich enterprise business applications. HTML5 was still fragmented and JavaScript was a very difficult language to scale across large teams and maintain on enterprise projects. Later that year when Microsoft announced their plans for the upcoming Windows 8 operating system, developers around the world took notice of two things: the...(Read whole news on source site)

I have already talked about SignalR in this blog. I think it is one of the most interesting technologies that Microsoft put out recently, not because it is something substantially new – AJAX, long polling and server-sent events have been around for quite some time -, but because of how easy and extensive they made it. Most of the examples of SignalR usually are about chat. You know that I have been digging into HTML5 lately, and I already posted on media acquisition using HTML5’s getUserMedia API. This time, however, I’m
going to talk about video streaming! I wrote a simple ASP.NET Web Forms control that leverages SignalR to build a real-time communication channel, and this channel transmits images as Data URIs. The source of the feed comes from getUserMedia and is therefore available in all modern browsers, except, alas, one that shall remain unnamed. Any browser, however, can be used to display the streaming feed. So, the architecture is quite simple:
