Adobe Media Player – my thoughts

I started looking at the latest version of Adobe Media Player(AMP) available on Adobe Labs. I notice lots of improvements, be it user-interface or performance or content-coverage, that is, more feeds/videos are available to watch.

Lots of audio/video podcasts can be played in Adobe Flash runtime. I wrote some code to check if videos from Podtech, Diggnation etc, and it works without doing anything extra. All credit goes to new video/audio capabilities (H.264 and AAC) in Adobe Flash runtime (player/air).

The only thing I miss in AMP is to be able to add custom rss-feeds, for example, AMP doesn’t show Podtech and Diggnation videos for some reason, if I can add those feeds to AMP that would be great.

Over all, AMP is good piece of work.

    You can add feeds, go to favorites and select add rss feeds at the bottom …. I love AMP its great.

    Actually, you can add custom RSS feeds: go to My Favorites and you’ll see the “Add RSS Feed” button at the bottom. I just tried one of the DiggNation feeds (http://revision3.com/diggnation/feed/quicktime-large) and it worked fine.
