    there are two approaches to get media into the silverlight format

    1. Use Expressions Encoder.
    2. Using Windows Media Encoder Transcoding / Encoding

    The approachable user interface in Expression Encoder 2 gives designers, editors and producers the ability to generate gorgeous rich media content wrapped in a Silverlight experience. Encode a wide array of file formats, produce live events, or run batch encodes from the command line to make your media ready for Silverlight.
