How many ways can we watch movies, or TV shows, or play music on our Macs? Adobe gives us one more—the Adobe Media Player, or, AMP, which uses Adobe’s AIR platform. A good first look of Adobe’s newest Flash comes from Peter Cohen of Macworld:
AMP is an interesting way for Adobe to leverage Flash video away from its “traditional” place on Web pages. The technology works reasonably well on the Mac. For now, there’s a relative paucity of compelling content, and nothing unique to AIR to make it a “must have” product.
ArsTechnica calls it an “AIR Ball”.
