Adobe Media Player targets Quicktime & WMP

Free video player now available

Adobe has launched its long-awaited media playing software - Adobe Media Player 1.0 (AMP) - along with online programming instructional video content on how to use the company's products.

Based on Adobe's Flash technology, Adobe Media Player contains both content creation and playback components and is available for Windows and Mac.

The move makes Adobe the latest software developer to get into the online video space, offering not only software that rivals Apple's Quicktime and Microsoft's Windows Media Player, but also video content such as episodes of 'CSI: Miami' and 'CSI: New York', along with other feature programming and music videos.

Adobe Media Player may be downloaded for free at http://www.adobe.com/products/mediaplayer. Pricing information for the video content publishing software was not immediately available.

Additionally, Adobe TV material can be viewed at http://tv.adobe.com. All of the instructional videos on the site were created using only Adobe software for the relevant components, the company said.
