Victor does Silverlight support DRM video for OS X?
I work on the codec team at Microsoft, and have been pretty
involved with Silverlight.Here's the presentation I did about WMV in Silverlight at Mix

In response to some of the above.
- Silverlight 1.0 supports both Intel and PPC Macs (and has for all the public
releases). I'd not heard that 1.1 would be Intel only, and will look into that.
But 1.1 is still a ways out - 1.0 is still only in beta.
- Note that 1.0 uses JScript for programming. The .net runtime isn't until
1.1. Both use WPF's XAML for layout.
- Cross-platform DRM is coming, but not in the released builds yet.
- A big part of why we're doing this is to address the problems of using WMV
in a cross-platform, cross-browser, rich and interactive environment. WMV and
its codecs, servers, and ecosystem are the best in the industry, and Silverlight
will be a way to keep what's great about WMV while getting a great embedded
experience working for a much broader audience.
there's a public beta of 1.0 that runs on Mac, with lots of good samples. Check
'em out at www.silverlight.net
