Boxee one of my favourite startups at the moment is unveiling its beta version of the popular Boxee software. I’ve been using Boxee for almost an year on my Macbook Pro and needless to say the experience is simply wonderful. Continue Reading…
If you have been a long time reader of DailyApps you must have read my previous review of Adobe Media Player here. It has finally come out of beta and Adobe has shipped the 1.0 release of Adobe Media Player.
In a nutshell Adobe Media Player is a slick desktop app built on Adobe AIR, that allows you to watch streaming and download videos from site like Revision3, BlipTV, MTV etc.. Pretty similar to what Miro already does in my opinion.
Adobe Media Player has the slickest interface I’ve probably seen in any media player to date. Adobe has put a lot of work and its clearly evident. The Video playback is no longer choppy and unlike the last time around the content library is full of high quality content. Check out my earlier review for some screenshots.
Adobe has launched a Media Player, that is kinda sandwiched between Miro and Adobe Digital Editions. Built upon the industry standard Flash, Adobe Media Player can be used to watch Online Video. There seems to be a mad rush to create desktop Media Players. While this is completely understandable, I thought Adobe could have come up with something better.
Installing Adobe Media Player is a breeze. You Need to install the latest beta of Adobe AIR and click a few buttons here and there to install Adobe Media Player and you are set. But here comes the sad part. For most part, Adobe Media Player is slow and unresponsive. It has a choppy playback, so for the time being I would stick to Miro.
What left me impressed was the amazing user Interface that the Media Player has. The UI of Adobe Media Player is one of the best and is fun and easy to use. There are not many shows pre programmed into the Media Player, so you have to manually add all your Favorite shows. Let me stop my rant here and show some screenshots of Adobe Media Player in Action.
