Difference between flash and silverlight


Recommended Posts

I am wondering, what the differences between adobe flash player and Microsoft silverlight are. As far as I have been able to tell they both do the same thing, Only difference I have seen so far is it seems flash is used more and less secure (do correct me if I am wrong).

there are many different codecs out there for encoding audio/video .
