Flash and H264…together!
This week, Adobe announced and posted a Flash player that included H264 decoding, essentially adding a new video codec for playback. Flash 6 was the first video codec with Sorenson Spark. With Flash 8, we added the much improved on2 VP6 codec. In the meantime, H264 has grown in adoption and it seemed to make sense to add an open codec to the Flash platform.
So, if you’re interested in giving it a test drive, mosey on over to Adobe’s Lab website labs.adobe.com
As an aside, the thing that flabbergasted me was how quickly all of our customers knew about this! The independent artist that attended last night’s AENY meeting as well as the large NYC broadcasters and everything in between. I guess 98% market penetration has that affect on people!
