    I have a question.I read in a post that if the video streamed from a WMS is Multiple-Bit-Rate Encoded, if played in a Silverlight media element then only the highest Bitrate stream is played and there is no automatic switching to a lower bit rate stream. If this is true does it mean that Microsoft is dropping Intelligent Streaming support in favour of Smooth Streaming? Or is it a bug that will be addressed in a bug fixed version of Silverlight?

    Hi Stavros,

    I don't know exactly how Silverlight handles MBR from WMS but if that's the case it should be just a implementation limitation in Silverlight. MBR is still fully supported from WMS and Windows Media Player. You might also want to check Sliverlight 3 Beta and see if this functionality is added.
