Best way to stream a large WMV to Silverlight client
Posted on 2011-03-15
I've been asked to add a large WMV file (180MB), as part of a presentation display, using Silverlight.
Due to the size of the file, I'm trying to lighten the load as best I can, to prevent excess memory usage and CPU load.
The idea of I've had so far are:
1) Download the file form the server on first load, then either save to IsolatedStorage, or save to file, as I'm always running OOB.
2) Somehow stream the file from the server, so I don't have to donlaod it, or load it into memory. I already have a large set of images making up a slide show, so I'm trying to keep memory usage down.
Can anyone give my any advice on the best way to tackle this.
