Tim Sneath [via Lamont] shows off the new Video.Show reference application:

Video.Show is an end-to-end solution that provides a reference-quality sample for user-generated video content sites. Taking advantage of all of our latest technologies: .NET Framework 3.5, ASP.NET AJAX, LINQ, Silverlight, Expression Encoder and imageSilverlight Streaming, Video.Show provides support for uploading, encoding, tagging, viewing and commenting on videos.

I was especially interested to see how they wrote the Linq data layer since it is shared out as a service. My own recent experience with this (which I will be sharing shortly) was that it was a little difficult to do. I was happy to see that the approach I took was the same as the one Vertigo took. You end up creating a set of objects that you pass outside of the service layer which are almost replicas of the Linq objects that get generated out of the database.

Overall it looks like a great reference app. Lots of code to look at and digest. You can download the bits here.

Live Writer - x64 Support Added

Posted in Live Writer | Vista at Friday, November 9, 2007 4:29 AM Pacific Standard Time

A little late, but I'm behind in my blog reading (and posting). From the Writer DevZone:

We have heard from many of you about the pain and frustration in the last beta release when support for installing on x64 systems was not supported.  We're happy to share that this has also been fixed and now installation on Windows Vista x64 is fully supported.

Very nice! Now I can actually install and run it (posting from it now). I really like the new installer and also installed the Live Photo Gallery app on my desktop. The app allows you to upload photos to spaces and also has support for uploading to Flickr. I really would like to extend this for my own custom photo service that I wrote for my family to share photos, anyone know if this is possible?
