Announcing the OSMF User Group

I’m pleased to announce the launch of the OSMF User Group! 

The Open Source Media
Framework (OSMF) User Group is a virtual group that aims to provide
support and education for those developing engaging, media-rich
applications that leverage the Open Source Media Framework.  Whether you’ve already been actively engaged with OSMF, or you’re just getting ready to dive in now, the user group is for you. 

At the helm are Greg Hamer and Jodie O’Rourke, two strong voices from the online video industry with loads
of experience designing, developing, consulting, and training in Flash
and Flex.

Check it out and join here:

Please note:  experience of OSMF is not a prerequisite to joining the group, and
we actively welcome beginners and experts alike. Our aim is to nurture
the enthusiasm that the community has for OSMF, and use the group as a
way of sharing new features that the framework has to offer, as well as
sharing ideas and examples from group members.

OSMF v0.6 now available

With great pleasure we announce version v0.6 of the Open Source Media Framework. The release brings a number of exciting new features to the framework:

  • A Logging API, that can be used stand-alone, or be hooked up to an existing logging framework.
  • New HTML Bridging classes that make it possible for HTML to participate in compositions of media elements.
  • VAST and MAST Support enable standards based advertising using the framework’s plug-in architecture.
  • Regions enable media elements to appear in pre-defined areas of a player application.
  • Concurrent Streams Support has been added to the dynamic streaming feature.

We’ve extended our main sample app 
to reflect the newly added features, but you’ll find individual samples for most of the features in the source repository too.
