Flash video n' related stuff
The latest update to the Flash Player brings serious video quality improvements, for those who have the right hardware. In this video interview with Tinic Uro of Adobe, he discusses the specifics. Here are the highlights:
Pretty exciting stuff, even though most of us don’t have the hardware to experience it just yet. Just more proof that Adobe is serious about video.
I ran across this free video player, called video.maru, that allows you to play FLVs without using the FLVPlayback component, and without writing even one line of ActionScript.
Seems like a good solution for those who just don’t want to deal with AS, period. His implementation is really quite clever, and pretty intuitive. Worth a look for those just getting started with Flash video and know they don’t want too many custom features.
