Hi all,
I am in the process of trying to make some major adjustment and upgrades to my web site's configuration. I am going to be doing a demo of my new server this weekend, and I'd like to make the video downloadable as a .mp4 for users who want it on their local hard drives for reference. I will use Youtube for playing it from for now, that is, until the Silverlight platform becomes more widely adopted. When it does, and if I choose to purchase a hosting plan for the video that has Silverlight included, does the Silverlight application that will play the video from within my web site need a web site of it's own on the server where the video is to hold it up? Some clarification would be greatly appreciated. Thanks.

The Silverlight player is just code embedded in your website, just like Flash.

So when a hosting company says they offer Silverlight hosting, they actually mean that they allow the code for it to be embedded on the sites on the server, or that they offer the player, but if it's just about where to put the video, that's not what matters?

I don't know what that means. It is sort of like saying "We offer HTML Hosting". They are not offering any code, just a platform on which to run it. Which it would do even if they didn't offer 'Silverlight Hosting'.
