Hi all,

as discussed at [1], Microsoft's IIS 7.0 comes with an extension (i.e.,
Smooth Streaming, [2]) that delivers fragments of media content designed for
Silverlight-based players. It can deliver media fragments at varying quality
levels. They also come with a URI scheme:
http://SmoothHD.com/Media.ism/QualityLevels(1024000)/Fragments(video=2000000
0). I did not find the semantics of such a URI, but maybe more information
will become available during the release (planned early 2009).
