HyperVideo & Windows Phone 7 Project Update

HVPWp7v1

     

    This is a quick update on the next steps for the HyperVideo Project that will touch on the following three sub-projects scheduled to be completed in the next six months:

  • Update to the web-based project (HVP v2)

  • Initial “port” of the HVP to Windows Phone 7  (HVP/WP7 v1)

  • Transmedia inspired WP7 application (HVP/WP7 v2)

        • and how you can follow and/or participate in these projects.


      HVP Version 2 – Updating the video player

      This goal of this short project is to upgrade the HVP to incorporate the SMF v2, integrate user feedback, and to enable the HVP to serve as the media player for Silverlight.net and potentially many other Microsoft sites. 

      The overview of the plan is posted in the Silverlight HyperVideo Platform Codeplex site (http://slhvp.com) as is the release schedule.

      While this update will incorporate much of the open source work (and some of the new work will be open source as well) most of the update will be proprietary to Microsoft as it will involve supporting internal meta-data that would not be of interest to other programmers.

      While this project is underway, however, the main thrust of the open source work will be on:

      HVP/WP7 Version 1 – Porting The HyperVideo Player to Windows Phone 7

      The very first version of the Windows Phone 7 HVP application will be a port of much of the functionality available on the web. 

      The overview of the plan is posted in the Silverlight HyperVideo Platform Codeplex site (http://slhvp.com) as is the release schedule.

      This project will be open-source and I’m hoping to have significant community involvement. Even while this is being completed, however, we’ll launch its successor:

      HVP/WP7 Version 2 – A Transmedia-inspired application

      Following through on the ideas presented in my recent post, Silverlight As A Transmedia Platform, we will design and implement a stand-alone Windows Phone 7 application that, when coupled with the web-based HVP is mutually enhancing

      The overview of the plan is posted in the Silverlight HyperVideo Platform Codeplex site (http://slhvp.com) as is the release schedule.

       

      [ NB: Depending on the level of community involvement, these timelines are very much subject to revision ]

        Can you post a link to a working example of this project? The one on this page doesn’t work. http://www.silverlight.net/getstarted/slhvp/
