Microsoft's Channel Definition Format (CDF)

If you've subscribed to some of Microsoft's premium channels, you may have seen some filenames that ended with the extension .cdf. These files are Channel Definition Format (CDF) files and are at the heart of Internet Explorer Webcasting. Microsoft developed the CDF standard so that content providers can quickly and easily author Webcast channels. This section introduces you to CDF and shows you how you can use it to create a channel of your own.

Note

Microsoft has submitted its CDF specification to the World Wide Web Consortium (W3C) for consideration as a standard. You can view the CDF spec online at http://www.w3.org/TR/NOTE-CDFsubmit.html. Additionally, Microsoft maintains an updated list of CDF elements at http://www.microsoft. com/standards/cdf/default.asp.
