There is this one site that is using Silverlight to stream videos. I dislike Silverlight a lot, because the plugin is always "not up-to date" and I need to update it all the time.
Is there any way to bypass the silverlight to watch that videos?
If Silverlight is not installed on your computer, some websites detect this and offer you streaming video in another format, such as Flash or Quicktime. But this of course entirely depends on these websites willing to make the effort.
The only other solution is to use an alternative player software. However, I don't see the difference between installing Silverlight and installing another software that implicitly contains Silverlight.
