Adobe Strobe it’s a new media video player framework from Adobe that intends to set an standard for media players.
If this work out it wold be really helpful, nowadays every developer and company has it’s own way of building a player not following standars for a simple reason, there are not any standars, so hopefully Strobe will help to solve that problem.
Strobe framework will work as a plug-in model if you need some specific behavior of the player you would build the necesary classes on top of the framework. This would be a relief for those developers who need a video player but for one reason or another end uo rewriting the entire player.
Quoted fro Adobe’s
Strobe provides new delivery and monetization options for video distribution. Anyone can develop modules that plug into Strobe media players and enable things like advertising insertion, content delivery and syndication, micropayments, viewer authentication, transaction handling, and business model controls. With an open framework, the future of web video monetization can be developed collaboratively with lower costs and faster turnaround.
So let’s wait and see once Adobe Strobe is released.
