Interested in sharing and discussing ideas around Adobe technologies? Now there is a place for all that brainstorming and it’s called Adobe Ideas.
I am sure there will be some great thinking happening in those forums.
Great news for those small and medium business looking for a fast and realiable cloud based ERP solution. The folks from PHC in Portugal have just launched their latest offering, PHC FX, an SaaS system with a full fron built using Adobe Flex.
I personally have been following this project for quite sometime and I must say [...]
I realized that for us, Europeans, it is a little bit harder to get our hands on a Nexus One or Droid phone. So, if you have created an AIR app for Android and you don’t have a device to test it we can meet at one of the next events I’m doing and I [...]

The first release of OSMF, 1.0 is out. This is great news for both developers and publishers. Using the components from OSMF you can build quickly high quality and fully featured video players. And if you think about this, it totally make sense. I mean if you are a publisher your main expertise is to [...]
The first release of Adobe’s Open Source Media Framework (OSMF 1.0) can be downloaded for free today from www.osmf.org. If this isn’t enough, social media start-up KickApps now offers an online service (www.osmfappstudio.com) available starting today. That certainly makes my Friday!
OSMF was started over a year ago to simplify the development of media players by allowing developers to assemble components to create high-quality, full featured video playback experiences. Key service providers such as Omniture, Akamai, Conviva, Eyewonder and many others have completed plug-ins or submitted code to be included as part of OSMF. OSMF 1.0 also supports the latest Flash Platform initiatives such as Flash Player 10.1, Flash Access 2.0 and HTTP Dynamic Streaming.
In addition to this fully tested, production ready version of OSMF, the team also posted the first prerelease of Strobe Media Playback. Strobe Media Playback is a compiled swf that allows a web developer to get up and running quickly and easily with an OSMF based media player. It basically will look and render the same in every browser (One of the issues with HTML5 video I have worried about is the problems for web developers to ensure a consistent look and feel across all browser/platform combinations and maintain it over time). The out of the box player looks like this:
The team has created a interface that gives the customer a terrific “out of the box” experience. Every group at Adobe who is interested in an easy to use web video experience should talk to the Strobe Media Playback team. The team is working to make SMP even easier to use through a hosted version that can be integrated on a customer’s web page as easily as an HTML 5 video tag, but with much more power and flexibility.
I have just posted a new release (.93) of as3corelib. The corelib project is an ActionScript? 3 Library that contains a number of classes and utilities for working with ActionScript? 3.
You can view a complete list of changes in the change list (items 75 – 106).
You can download the updated SWC and source from [...]
It’s looking like FITC San Francisco is going to be awesome. The speaker lineup is bomber and the diversity of the sessions means that there’s going to be something for everyone. Plus the fact that we’re down in San Fran means you’ll get to see a lot of Adobeans in the halls. I’m going to be doing a talk on Geolocation and Mapping with the Flash Platform, a more in-depth version of what I did at Flash and the City.
