Not surprising that Microsoft will be a strategic investor in Move Networks, the small Utah startup which has introduced a new way to stream high quality online video through a process called adaptive streaming.

In April at NAB in Las Vegas, I interviewed Microsoft’s Steve Skleplowich about
the newly announced alliance between Microsoft and Move. He explains what a future alliance will mean — it’s all about Silverlight.

You can see this in action now, with the Democratic National Convention streaming live high quality video.  Before you watch you are asked to download both the Move or Silverlight plug-ins.

Below is my interview with Move’s CEO John Edwards which was taped last month.  Both interviews are republished.
