MICROSOFT SILVERLIGHT

Although Microsoft's Silverlight was originally conceived as a competitor to Adobe Flash, it now finds itself competing with Abobe's Web 2.0 platform, Adobe Air.
The harsh truth is, Microsoft Silverlight has already fallen considerably behind Adobe Air. In typically Microsoft style, the software giant's surely missed the boat, by aiming at a replacement for Adobe Flash when the web world was already shifting towards interactive Web 2.0 platforms such as Adobe Air.

Microsoft Silverlight is a lightweight plugin that allows you to watch Silverlight-based content in your browser. It works with most major browsers, including Firefox and Safari. There is no prompt to restart the browser after installation but I recommend you do so because the first site of Silverlight content I accessed after installation simply crashed the browser.

The most important improvements to the latest version are smoother streaming, DRM management, and an out-of browser player. The out-of browser player, however, is dependent on developers embracing it and as yet, there are few examples available. The smooth streaming feature will iron out many of the streaming programs that have plagued Microsoft Silverlight in the past. If your bandwidth drops below 3Mbps, smooth streaming will kick-in so that your video isn't affected.

Microsoft Silverlight can stream high resolution video well and supports HD-quality videos. If you want to create content for Silverlight, you'll need Expression Studio and Visual Studio. In fact, this latest release is is of particular interest to developers because it adds 60 customizable controls, new layout containers, 'deep linking' for page bookmarking, search engine optimization, and enhanced data support.

The signs are though that Microsoft has realized that the battle for web content is already being won by the much slicker and more stable Adobe Air platform and is therefore aiming Microsoft Silverlight at business users. The Silverlight homepage boasts 'Learn how Silverlight is right for your business', and that companies such as Continental Airlines have adopted Silverlight for use in their reservation system, showing that Microsoft knows which side its bread is buttered on.

Silverlight has probably missed the boat as far as Web 2.0 goes, although there's probably no way you can avoid it since there will always be some websites that opt to stream content with Silverlight rather than Flash.

Pros
Lightweight plug-in
Streams high resolution and HD video
Smooth streaming support

Cons
No support Flash or AAC content
Streams can take some time to start
Inferior to Adobe Air

ADOBE SHOCK WAVE PLAYER

If you want to play in online games on your browser, there's a good chance you'll need Adobe ShockWave Player, the daddy of online action plug-ins.

After a simple install and restart of your browser, you'll be able to enjoy a large range of graphically impressive online experiences. Most of the time you won't notice Adobe ShockWave Player is even there, but like flash and other plug ins it should be one of your basic downloads after installing a browser.

Compared to other more recent plug-ins like Unity, Adobe ShockWave Player is quite resource heavy. We tried some online Shockwave things that really slowed down our system. However, while it's a platform developers continue to use, it's useful to have.

While Flash and Unity have probably superseded it in many places, Adobe ShockWave Player can still give you some enjoyable Web gaming.

Pros
Allows you to play action games on the web
Easy to install

Cons
Inefficient
Still necessary to install v.10 for some things

Thanks a lot for this great clarification, bro.
 :) :D

But correct my understanding in this ;
1- Adobe Shockwave Player is for playing online games.
2- Do you say that it's recommended to install v10 of Adobe Shockwave Player instead of v11?
3- I can use Adobe Air instead of Silverlight. (Both do the same job)
4- I use Adobe Flash Player for watching online videos like "Youtube", so what is Adobe Air or Silverlight for? ...Are they for watching online TV channels? ... Sorry, I don't understand the meaning of "Streaming" ;;; is it for online videos or channels?

Thanks again for your support. :)

"1- Adobe Shockwave Player is for playing online games."
Yes it is for playing online games as well as the small games which are downloaded from websites[eg. Miniclip.com] :D

"2- Do you say that it's recommended to install v10 of Adobe Shockwave Player instead of v11?"
Latest version is always preferred. ::)

"3- I can use Adobe Air instead of Silverlight."
Yes Adobe Air instead of Silverlight :D
BUT :o
some websites still support Silverlight
Lightweight plug-in
Streams high resolution and HD video
Smooth streaming support

Silverlight has probably missed the boat  :(as far as Web 2.0 goes, although there's probably no way you can avoid it since there will always be some websites that opt to stream content with Silverlight rather than Flash.

"so what is Adobe Air"
It is called Adobe Integrated Run time. It is used to run Flash based and RIA [For meaning see next post]based Desktop clients.

You might be wondering why we need AIR, even though we have Flash Player Installed in our machine. :(

Actually Adobe Provided a Software called Adobe Flex Builder to build RIA very fast. The core libraries are Flash Libraries only. But on top of those libraries they built components, charts to Build flash websites very easily. To run these websites we need Flash Player.

But there is also an option for creating desktop applications, where they can be installed on to your machine and run as normal windows applications. The good thing here is whatever you can do with flash, you can do on this windows. These applications are called AIR/Desktop/Offline Applications.
To run these applications we need AIR run time. It's a super set of Flash player libraries plus some Other libraries. :)




"What is Silverlight Used for?"
Effects
Microsoft Silverlight played an influential role by providing live on-demand video streaming of the Democratic National Convention and the Olympics on the Internet.

Features
Microsoft Silverlight has a Deep Zoom feature, which allows you to keep zooming in on the picture without distorting it.

Considerations
Netflix uses Microsoft Silverlight to deliver on-demand movies via the Internet to its customers. Some customers had complained the streaming video was choppy and grainy. Microsoft fixed this problem by releasing an upgrade.

Function
Microsoft Silverlight allows you to create and deliver content to mobile devices.

Significance
Microsoft Silverlight delivers high-definition video and rich interactive applications on multiple platforms, including Windows, MAC and Linux.

Famous Ties
Microsoft has collaborated with CBS and the National Collegiate Athletic Association to stream video of the March Madness basketball championship.




Streaming:-- ???
Data streaming, commonly seen in the forms of audio and video streaming, is when a multimedia file can be played back without being completely downloaded first. Most files, like shareware and software updates that you download off the Internet, are not streaming data. However, certain audio and video files like Real Audio and QuickTime documents can be streaming files, meaning you can watch a video or listen to a sound file while it's being downloaded to your computer. With a fast Internet connection, you can actually stream live audio or video to your computer.

:Are they for watching online TV channels: [AIR & Silverlight] :P
Yes for online streaming of Videos,Movies,TV Channels,just an alternative for Adobe Flash.

A Rich Internet Application (RIA) is a Web application that has many of the characteristics of desktop application software, typically delivered by way of a site-specific browser, a browser plug-in, an independent sandbox, extensive use of JavaScript, or a virtual machine.

[1] Adobe Flash, JavaFX, and Microsoft Silverlight are currently the three most common platforms, with desktop browser penetration rates around 96%, 76%, and 66% respectively (as of August 2011).

[2] Mobile phone penetration of these plugins, however, has remained low even as internet traffic from these devices has grown.

[3] Although new Web standards have emerged, they still use the principles behind RIAs.
Users generally need to install a software framework using the computer's operating system before launching the application, which typically downloads, updates, verifies and executes the RIA.

[4] This is the main differentiator from JavaScript-based alternatives like Ajax that use built-in browser functionality to implement comparable interfaces. As can be seen on the List of rich Internet application frameworks which includes even server-side frameworks, while some consider such interfaces to be RIAs, some consider them competitors to RIAs; and others, including Gartner, treat them as similar but separate technologies.

[5]RIAs dominate in online gaming as well as applications that require access to video capture (with the notable exception of Gmail, which uses its own task-specific browser plug-in).

[6] Web standards such as HTML5 have developed and the compliance of Web browsers with those standards has improved somewhat. However, the need for plug-in based RIAs for accessing video capture and distribution has not diminished,

[7] even with the emergence of HTML5 and JavaScript-based desktop-like widget sets that provide alternative solutions for mobile Web browsing.
