Ian Dixon has posted the most recent episode of the Media Center Show today. I talked with Ian a few weeks ago about Media Center Markup Language (MCML) development for Windows Media Center for Windows Vista, and he decided to create a 2 part show based on our talk (part 2 will be coming next week). The first part focuses on getting started with MCML development, including a discussion of some of the learning tools and samples included in the Windows Media Center SDK (such as McmlSampler and the Q sample podcast and videoblog client).
In addition, Ian posted a Media Center Show Extra where he presents an overview of both McmlSampler and Q as they appear when running within Windows Media Center.
Here are links to both the show and the extra segment:
If you are just getting started with Windows Media Center development, or are thinking about it, I encourage you to check out this episode of the Media Center Show to see how easy it can be to get started.
