NEWS: Go Soapbox, GO! Microsoft’s Video service goes live!

I really like Soapbox. 

Unless you’ve been living in a cave over the past couple of weeks, you know that Microsoft went into beta with its online video service called Soapbox.  It’s got a very clean interface and appears to be the only service that optimizes the video experience depending on the the end user’s client software.

If you visit http://soapbox.msn.com and you use Windows & Internet Explorer:
– You will get Windows Media 9 streams, which are bandwidth friendly and looks fantastic.

If you visit http://soapbox.msn.com and you use Firefox or you use a Macintosh with Safari:
– You will get a Flash Video stream instead.

My "MSN Soapbox" video area is located at, for anyone who cares.
