Adobe delivers Flash Player 9 with H.264 support
Adobe Systems has made available Adobe Flash Player 9 Update 3 software with support for H.264 video and High Efficiency AAC (HE-AAC) audio capabilities.
The latest update also features hardware accelerated, multicore enhanced full-screen video playback for high-resolution viewing across major operating systems and browsers. The combination of Adobe Flash Player 9 and Adobe Flash Media Server 3 enables the delivery of HD-quality video to the broadest online audience.
H.264 support is an encoding option in Adobe Premiere Pro and Adobe After Effects software and is now integrated across the Adobe Flash family of products. Support extends to applications developed for Adobe AIR software, a cross-operating system application runtime that lets developers use their existing skills to build and deploy rich Internet applications (RIAs) to the desktop.
