Has anyone else tried silverlight on a Mac recently ?<br><br>Having had a very positive experience with iPlayer on the BBC website, I thought I'd try ITV.com. Unfortunately they required me to download a browser plug-in from M$ called silverlight in order to watch the 'catch up' programming.<br><br>Having installed silverlight I attempted to watch a soap. The Mac appeared to go into overdrive. The fans kicked in on my laptop - a very rare event - and the programme just stuttered, played 20 seconds, stuttered, played a bit more - this went on for 5 minutes before I just gave up. I guess I should have known better.<br><br><br><br><br>

Doesn't it drive you crazy when a web site uses proprietary software for media files?<br><br>[Edit] Well, the FAQs state that a 3GHz or faster processor or a multi-core processor will get you the best results.

I didn't know Silver light was even finished for the Mac yet. I thought that's what Netflix was waiting for to offer Mac streaming. (Maybe they're waiting for a new version of Silverlight?)<br><br>nagr[color:red]o</font color=red>mme<br><br>I require stroyent!<br>TeamMacOSX.com | MacClan.net
