Last month, two new Media-related releases were published in the MSDN code samples gallery:
Smooth Streaming Manifest Generator release
The Smooth Streaming Manifest Generator is a lightweight Portable Class Library (PCL) that allows you to easily parse and generate Smooth Streaming manifests, such as ISM (server manifest), ISMC (client manifest) and CSM (composite stream manifest). This is really useful for building workflows to generate sub-clips out of Smooth Streaming media sources. The following sample code shows how easy it is to generate a CSM with a single clip using this library.
For more information related to Smooth Streaming manifests, refer to the following articles:

- Microsoft Media Platform Video Editor (formerly RCE)
Microsoft Media Platform Video Editor 2.1 release
The Silverlight Microsoft Media Platform (MMP) Video Editor (formerly known as Rough Cut Editor – RCE) simplifies the editing and publishing process, enabling real-time, browser-based video editing, and providing the ability for publishers to improve collaboration, manage dynamic metadata and deliver exciting content to the Web.
The MMP Video Editor 2.1 release includes the following new features:
- Upgraded Visual Studio 2012 solution
- Support for fade in and fade out transitions
- New mode to snap mark in and mark out positions to the nearest fragment boundary
