Video Ads with Silverlight

Google is experimenting with Video Ads
, as you can read here (New York Times) and here.

I, a software developer
, working for a news (and adversiment) publishing media company
, combined this with my Silverlight experiments.
This all resulted in this proof-of-concept video/Ad-player.

The Ad fades in at second 3, after having hit the 'Play-button'.
Clicking the Ad's image, pauses the video and opens a new browser-window to the advertisers site (click 'Play' again to resume).
A click on the white X-rectangle makes the Ad disappear.



PS: U need to have Silverlight installed for the demo.
