What is Adobe® Media Player?

    Adobe Media Player software provides viewers with control and flexibility to watch what they want, when they want — whether online or offline. Users can download and subscribe to their favorite Internet TV content and manage their personal video library for viewing at their convenience.

What is the difference between Adobe Media Player and Adobe Flash® Player?

    The Adobe Flash Player runtime is a cross-platform browser extension that plays back SWF and FLV/MPEG-4 content within web pages when a user is online. Adobe Media Player is a cross-platform desktop application specifically designed to play back streamed or downloaded FLV or MPEG-4 video content when users are online or offline. It offers a wealth of features for discovering, organizing, and subscribing to video content — even automatically downloading subscribed episodes so they can be viewed anytime.

How large is Adobe Media Player to download?

    Adobe Media Player is lightweight, about 2MB–3MB in size.

On which operating systems does Adobe Media Player run?

    Adobe Media Player is built on top of the Adobe AIR™ runtime and is cross-platform, running on both Windows® and Mac OS. See the most recent Release Notes for more detailed information and system requirements.

Have there been any changes to the product since the prerelease version?

    There have been minor changes to the user interface such as highlighting features on the home page and in the catalog.

How does Adobe Media Player handle subscriptions?

    Users can subscribe to their favorite shows and will automatically receive new episodes as they become available. Shows are delivered as simple RSS feeds, so Adobe Media Player will automatically download new content as the feeds update.

How extensive is the Adobe Media Player catalog?

    A broad, searchable catalog of shows from the leading media companies and networks is featured and will be continually expanded to include video from independent producers as well as user-generated content.

Does Adobe Media Player also play back local content?

    Yes, local video content such as personal videos can be added to your catalog and played back in Adobe Media Player, as long as they are in FLV (Spark or VP6 codec) or MPEG-4 (H.264 codec) format.

Is Adobe Media Player content censored or regulated in any way?

    To help filter out inappropriate or illegal content, shows can be flagged by viewers. Flagged content is reviewed by Adobe Media Player administrators, and flagged feeds may be disabled. Parental controls are planned in a future release.
