The Open Source Media Framework (OSMF) was released today. If you don’t know what OSMF is:
Open Source Media Framework (OSMF) simplifies the development of media players by allowing developers to assemble components to create high-quality, full-featured video playback experiences. This open framework enables development focused on web-based video monetization, with lower costs and faster turnaround.
The 1.0 release can be downloaded from http://opensource.adobe.com/wiki/display/osmf/Downloads
Also announced was the Strobe Media Playback pre-release. The Strobe Media Playback is an opensource and free playback component built using the OSMF that:
- Has a predefined user interface
- Supports all the same video features as OSMF, including Progressive Download, RTMP streaming, Live Streaming, HTTP Dynamic Streaming
- Supports content protection with Flash Access 2.0.
- Supports controlling the interface through HTML embed tags, including player dimensions, setting auto start and auto hide behaviors & full screen support and more.
Now that OSMF 1.0 has been released, we’ll be working on the REOPS (The Realeyes OSMF Player Sample) code samples, documents and source so it is up to date with this 1.0 release. You can download the code and samples from the Google Code project and make sure to follow @reops on Twitter or check out the REOPS stream for updates.
