Flash goes offline

Adobe is expected to launch a new Adobe Media Player that will get Flash videos playing in offline mode. The media player, till date code-named Philo, will enable users to subscribe to videos via RSS. Commenting and sharing will also come as part of the media player. The new move from Adobe is directed more towards content publishers with DRM tools included as part of the package to control reuse of content. Besides this, the new product will also offer analytics capabilities to publishes for getting media usage details. To avoid conflict of interests and startups jumping onto other media playing platforms like Move Networks, Adobe is not trying to project an image that it is competing with recently launched video delivery and personalization tools for desktop. The Media Player will go into beta testing later in the spring and will be generally available later this year. On the whole, this is yet another strong product to appear on the Apollo scene. Personally I am not convinced to make Apollo part of my daily life as yet. Will see if that changes after launch of the media player and office tools, combined with existing offering from Yourminis.
