    "If only there was a negative star rating scale..."

    Version: Microsoft Silverlight 5.1.20513.0


    Cannot think of any pros for Silverlight. I only know about it because Netflix made the unfortunate decision to use it.


    I don't know if it's the cause of the daily hiccups with video playback on other sites, but on Netflix, Silverlight is a clusterf*ck.

    Every five minutes, the video playback lags about 5 seconds behind the audio. When I can tolerate that annoyance long enough, it catches up in a second or two of mildly amusing Charlie Chaplin-esque fast motion. When I cannot tolerate it, having to click and drag the slider to sync video and audio every thirty seconds or so is an annoying distraction.

    Seems to get better for a day or so right after I re-download Silverlight, but today makes more than ten times I have had to do so in the past six months; the third time in two weeks. I have tried using Chrome, Firefox and IE, with no discernable difference in performance, regardless of the browser used.

    Don't know if Silverlight has anything to do with video playback regularly not working on other sites, but I'm inclined to believe it does, because Silverlight bites.

    Too bad it's too slow.
