What is Silverlight?


Silverlight is a small install by Microsoft to allow video streaming. It is similar to 'Flash,' which is what you have installed if you ever watch videos on YouTube.

If you have ever watched the Olympics live on the Internet or streamed NetFlix movies to your computer, then you already have Silverlight. Otherwise, you can download it by clicking here.

How do I make a video?


Currently, Viternus only allows you to upload a video you have already made. The best way to do this is through your webcam or by using Windows Movie Maker (on Windows) or iMovie (on Macintosh). We are constantly taking feedback and working to improve our website to enable easy video creation and upload.
