The Empire Strikes Back

I had an interesting discussion yesterday with the CEO of a leading content delivery network. He confirmed what I had long suspected - Flash streaming doesn't scale.

With the lack of support for full screen playback, lack of fullscreen support, Digital Rights Management and live events, Windows Media is still the only serious professional choice for now.

It's also interesting to note that MTV moved from Flash to WM for their last version of Overdrive.
