    I went to the Silverlight section from your home page and then saw the AD for Silverlight Product video. I clicked on it to watch it, but to my surprise, it's done in Flash. I think it feels a bit strange to use a competing product to showcase a product that is supposed to do the same thing as competing product, i.e. play video.

    Seriously, in that page, you should use RADMediaPlayer from your SL product to show that video and not Flash. It takes a lot of credibility away from your product and hands it over to Flash.

    Just a thought!

    Hello Ben,

    Thanks for your feedback.

    We are currently using flash on the "RadControls for Silverlight" Overview page as we wanted this page to be consistent with the rest of the site and especially with the Overview pages of the other product lines.
    We intend to swap the Flash presentation with a pure Silverlight tool (probably RadMediaPlayer) any time soon. However, there are other things to be considered with such a change and once we are ready with the UI of the new Overview page, we will update it on the site.

    Once again thanks for your feedback and involvement.

    Regards,
