Adobe Flash Player supporting H.264
Posted on 21-Aug-2007 17:00. | Tags Filed under: News.

Adobe Systems Incorporated has announced an update for its Adobe Flash Player 9 software, code-named Moviestar, which includes H.264 standard video support. This is the same standard deployed in Blu-Ray and HD-DVD high definition video players, plus High Efficiency AAC (HE-AAC) audio support, as well as hardware accelerated, multi-core enhanced full screen video playback.

According to the company these advancements will enable the delivery of HD television quality and premium audio content through the Adobe Flash Player and pave the way to expand rich media Flash experiences on the desktop and H.264 ready consumer devices.

The latest update for Adobe Flash Player 9 will be available in beta on Adobe Labs.

With H.264 encoding already available in Adobe Premiere Pro and Adobe After Effects software, H.264 playback is now enabled in Adobe Flash Player, and will be supported by the Adobe Integrated Runtime (AIR) and applications developed with Adobe AIR software, including Adobe Media Player.

Adobe AIR is a cross-operating system application runtime that enables developers to use their existing skills to build and deploy rich Internet applications to the desktop.

Adobe Flash Player content reaches over 98 percent of Internet-enabled desktops, as well as a wide range of devices. Today, both live and on demand television shows are being delivered online with video that can be viewed using Adobe Flash Player, and the technology also powers the video capabilities of social networking sites such YouTube and MySpace. As Adobe expands Flash experiences outside the Web browser, content can be shared across different devices and people can get great video experiences on the video players of their choice, including the upcoming Adobe Media Player.
