use expression encoder for creating silverlight media applications? want to put them on silveright streaming? frustrated perhaps that you have to create a zip file with manifests and such? look no further!
james clarke writes about a feature just added to expression encoder (via a download) where you can now add 'publish to silverlight streaming' after your encoding job is completed. w00t!
you'll need to get the encoder plugin (assuming you have encoder first) and just install that. the post on james' site walks you through the steps, but it is a no brainer. i'd previously written about customizing your own encoder templates as well and making them a part of the encoder selection options for output. good thing is that those custom templates are just like any other and they are supported for this plugin as well. in fact, one of my last posts that used silverlight streaming was uploaded by this tool, using a custom template as well. very cool, very fast to get up and running using someone else's bandwidth (and for free) :-).
