FlashBelt 2010, another incredible success!

Jun 18, 2010 Author: Lisa Larson-Kelley | Filed under: Industry News, Tutorials & Code

Maybe its because I’m from the midwest, or maybe its Dave’s hospitality, but I always feel like I’m coming home when I get to Minneapolis. With an amazing lineup of speakers (in which I was honored to be included) and a friendly, laid-back crowd of talented developers and designers, this year’s FlashBelt was a great experience.

Although my session, “Demystifying Flash Video Delivery,” was up against rockstars Hugh Elliott and Ralph Hauwert, I had a great turn out. Thanks to everyone who attended, and stayed awake for, my preso. 🙂

If you missed the session, or missed any details, you can grab the presentation here in PDF format:


I also promised that a whitepaper on HTTP Dynamic Streaming that I’m working on will be published by Adobe “any day now.” That is still true… watch my blog for an update and a link to the free doc when it’s published.

On Wednesday, June 9 at 11am PST/2pm EST I’ll be presenting an online Connect session to introduce Open Source Media Framework 1.0.


I’ll introduce the fundamentals of Open Source Media Framework (OSMF), give you a head start with some basic code examples, and also show you some quick and easy no-code options for building players on the framework. This session is for beginner to intermediate programmers and web developers who want to gain a better understanding of OSMF, and how it can simplify media player development.

And just for attending, you could win a copy of CS5!

So go register now, and I’ll see you there…
