February Meeting: Open Source Media Framework
At our February meeting David Salahi will demonstrate the process of creating a Flash media player using the Open Source Media Framework. The OSMF is "an open software framework for building robust, feature-rich video players and applications based on the Adobe® Flash® Platform." The current version is "Sprint 8" and the official V1.0 release is anticipated later this year.
The framework consists of a three-tier architecture which can be built upon using either Adobe Flash Professional or Adobe FlexBuilder/FlashBuilder. The framework is designed to simplify player development and reduce development time. You can either use the standard player, as is, or you can easily customize it.
The presentation at the February OC Flash meeting will pick up where the January meeting left off. In February we will see a player that has been customized to use the video transcript that was automatically generated from a video at the January meeting. The player will use the generated XML transcript file to display cue point markers on the video player timeline which allow the user to jump directly to a section of interest within the video. The ActionScript code used for the customization will be explained at the meeting.
Our next meeting will take place February 2, 2009 at 6:30 p.m. We meet on the first Tuesday each month at roundpeg in Newport Beach (near the Orange County airport).
