Time for action—preparing a video to use it in Silverlight

Now, we are going to use Expression Encoder to convert the video from an AVI format to an HD 720p Intranet (High Definition, 1280X720 pixels) encoding profile, compatible with Silverlight 3:

  2. Start Expression Encoder.
  3. Select File | New Job.
  4. Now, select File | Import.... Browse to the folder that holds the video file (C:\Silverliintroduction_HD.avi)ght3D\Invaders3D\Media) and select the file introduction_HD.avi to import. Then, click on Open. Expression Encoder will analyze the file for a few seconds and then, the first frame for the video will appear on the preview area.
