Adobe announces flash media player Today, Adobe announced that they will be introducing the Adobe Media Player, a desktop application that will give users the ability to play all flash videos without the need for a plug-in for your regular web browser.
The media player will giver users the ability to view flash videos offline on a full screen and will also include a "favorites" feauture that will automatically download new episodes of their favorite video podcasts.

The Adobe Media Player promises to "deliver, monetize, brand, track and protect video content" for content publishers. The Media Player will also include DRM-infested streaming encryption, content integrity protection and identity-based protection.

The Adobe Media Player should compete with Quicktime and Windows Media Player and will be available as a free beta release later this year before it is fully released by the end of the year.

Took them years to realise that the market needed a player and not a plug-in that (in my case) nver manage to install properly.

Bravo Adobe (even if it is a little late)

The article DID say DRM, right? ADOBE should've left Macromedia alone. They were doing just fine.
