Advantage/Disadvantage of media


  • Hello Community

        Having used Web Media Parts I am wondering what is the advantage or
    disadvantage of using Windows Media Player vs Web Media Parts?


        Maybe I should say what scenarios would you use Web Media Player
    and what scenarios would you use Web Media Parts?

        Thank you

  • Windows Media Player is a really sophisticated application vs the Media Web Part, Windows Media Player can play video at different speeds and do a buuunch of other stuff. The Media Web Part is meant to be a simple cross browser web part to play videos and all. Nothing fancy though. Windows Media Player is windows only, Media Web Part is windows and Mac (its silverlight)

    Please mark my response as an answer if appropriate.
