I think this player doesn´t play .avi in Progressive Download.

Is it planned to add .avi playing in near future?

I think this has been discussed before, but couldn't find the quote.

The last time I saw the topic, the official stance was "no AVI, feel free to create your own MediaPlugin".

This is correct, the player framework supports all formats supported natively by Silverlight + smooth streaming. AVI unfortunately is not supported by the Silverlight. There is a way you could build support yourself but it is not an easy task. First you'd create a MediaStreamSource (the hard part), then you'd have to create a MediaPlugin (a relatively easy task) that uses your custom MediaStreamSource.

Is it planned update SMF Player with Silverlight 5?

Silverlight 5 include native functions to .AVI

Thanks again,
