The revolutionary PDF file format was created by Adobe in response to a string of word processor documents – combining readability and security on a single platform.
Right from that moment, Adobe has been releasing phenomenal products in the market with its latest product being Adobe Media Player.
With the rising popularity of YouTube and other online video services, Adobe has joined the race and is focused on providing a service which allows users to view videos if they have an Internet connection.
Due to a multitude of errors and failed ratings in different surveys, Adobe had to stop continuing the Adobe Media Player project last September.
The Adobe Media Player was designed to be an AIR application to stream videos right to your desktop.
The default videos available in the player were supposed to be tutorials and video demonstrations of different Adobe products and later expanded to the gamut of user videos. It can be considered both an online and offline tool capable of playing different movie formats like the FLV and F4V files apart from other regular video formats. This compact tool facilitated the best ease-of-use among other products before fading into oblivion.
You could use this program even if you were not an expert with software applications. Further, you could also search easily and efficiently due to the expert mode of tagging all videos properly.
However, the highlight of Adobe Media Player had to be its own in-house TV called Adobe TV.
They focus on instructing and educating people on Adobe products. The Adobe Media Player features the four main channels of Adobe TV – photographer, designer, video professional and developer. While these videos revolve around its own products, the Adobe Media Player also focuses on online video libraries.
The biggest advantage of the Adobe Media Player is that it features an online and offline video service – it can be used as a media player and also like YouTube. The whole package is less than 3 MB and can be downloaded with ease but now that Adobe has discontinued the Media Player, users are going to have to look elsewhere for video services.
