Hello, my name is Chad Gibson and I’m a program manager within the Digital Media Division at Microsoft.  Our team is working on several different areas of the Windows digital media platform, and I’ve created this blog to start sharing several of our plans with the growing community of folks interested in digital media. 


Are you a digital media enthusiast? 

I’d like to hear what gets you excited about digital media, and what drives you crazy. 


Are you a developer writing cool audio/video applications? 

Let’s hear what you like/dislike with current technology such as directshow, the windows media format sdk, the windows media player sdk, or other related digital media technologies. 


I’ll try to cover a broad array of topics such as audio/video capturing, editing, encoding, recording, and of course playback.
