Microsoft is launching its own video site

Microsoft Video Beta
Microsoft is going to launch its own video site – Microsoft Videos Beta, in this coming April. The uniqueness of this website is its video player is supported by Silverlight but not Adobe Flash player. :shock:

With Silverlight’s feature, it would be no problem to load and play a video like flash player does. Microsoft Videos Beta is aiming to be a central location for view rich media from Microsoft. Its main competitor, no doubt, surely will be Youtube.

My $0.02

After Microsoft lost the war of Youtube acquisition to Google, Microsoft Videos has decided to produce its own video platform. With its limited web developers, I highly doubt Microsoft can launch a competitive website compare to Youtube. If Microsoft wants to win this war, video loading speed and video quality will be the main concerns at this moment.

Microsoft, don’t lose again!

p/s: At this hour, Microsoft is still bidding Yahoo for USD31 per share. Rumor saying that the bid price per share will be increased to USD34 soon. How do you think?
