Adobe have just released their new Media Player. AMP is a free download which allows you to view and stream Flash videos on their PC. Active channels at the moment include Arts & Culture, Comedy, Music, Lifestyle, Science and Technology and more.
For such a new service, the range of content they’ve lined up from the Networks is quite impressive. Having watched a few minutes of CSI NY already, I can see how appealing this will be for both viewers and publishers. Sure, YouTube is great if you want to watch the odd silly videos through your browser. But what if you want to watch something a little more produced, informative and professional from your own desktop?
Here’s the official blurb from Adobe.
Pick the episodes you love to watch, and AdobeÂ® Media Player software will track new episodes and download them so you can watch whenever you want.
