Bring on the HD Video
Adobe announced today a new update to Flash Player 9 that will allow it to support full HD video. Flash Player 9 Update 3 , available later today, will support 480p, 720p and 1080p content encoded with either On2 or H.264. This new update will also support MPEG-4 standard container files that contain video and audio data encoded using H.264/HE-AAC, including MP4, M4V, M4A, MOV, Mp4v, 3gp, 3g2. This is an interesting play from Adobe and it provides a good alternative for developers that were looking toward Silverlight for better video support.
