Adobe Releases OSMF, Strobe Media Playback 1.6
Back in early June, we reported on the pre-release of Adobe’s OSMF 1.6, and its support for late-binding audio. Adobe has been working hard to improve upon the upgrades they gave us with the OSMF 1.6, Sprint 5 release, and to add even more new features for mobile as well. Today Realeyes Media is pleased to announce that OSMF 1.6, and Strobe Media Playback 1.6 have been granted their final release status.
A brief overview of the updates available in OSMF and Strobe Media Playback 1.6:
- In regards to late-binding audio, as promised, today’s release supports live playback as well as video on demand (VOD).
- Also in regards to late-binding audio, fixes to seek issues resolved.
- For mobile – offers Stage Video support for hardware-accelerated video presentation(requires Flash Player 10.2+).
- DVR rolling window support, which allows you specify how far back from the live point viewers can rewind (requires the newly released FMS 4.5).
Strobe Media Playback 1.6
- For Mobile – Smartphone and tablet optimized chrome for Flash-enabled devices
- For Mobile – HTML5 video player for non-Flash devices
- Improvements to HTTP Dynamic Streaming as well as the ability to better manage bitrate profiles with multi-level manifests.
- The OSMF team has produced a completely revamped wiki for OSMF and Strobe Media Playback.
This is exciting news for those of us using OSMF and/or the Strobe Media Playback. Thank you to Cathi Kwon and the rest of the OSMF team for giving us these new and powerful feature updates!
