JibJab and OSMF

JibJab’s director of engineering, Chris Poe, told us recently why the company chose Open Source Media Framework (OSMF), Flex, and Adobe Flash Builder software to develop its next-generation, custom video player. According to Poe, they wanted to avoid reinventing the wheel and building on top of OSMF was a great way to get their project 90% of the way there as it’s a well-designed, open source media player framework with support from Adobe and the OSMF community.

Poe adds that Adobe Flash technology has always been great for delivering media via the web and that the ubiquity of the Adobe Flash Player and sophistication of the authoring tools made JibJab’s decision to put its money on Adobe Flash technologies and OSMF an easy one.
