Variable Playback Rate

Silverlight 5 includes the ability to check and change the playback rate of media. MediaElement now includes a PlaybackRate property and a RateChanged event.

Application-Restricted Media
Application-restricted media is a new feature in Silverlight 5 that enables content providers to ensure their content under digital rights management (DRM) is consumed only by Silverlight applications they authorize. This is ensured by requiring Silverlight client applications accessing restricted media to be signed with an Authenticode x.509 certificate. For more information about signing applications, see Application Signing. For more information about DRM, see Digital Rights Management (DRM).

Key Rotation
Silverlight 5 includes support for Live TV scenarios that have policies and licenses. A Silverlight 5 client manages the enforcement of changing policies for the developer. No special client application code is required. For more information, see Digital Rights Management (DRM).

Remote Control Support
