Next BBC Video Player Built On AIR

As per this article, the BBC has announced the launch of a brand new media player for Android devices. The new player is based on Adobe AIR and was developed in response to Flash not begin supported on Android as of Jelly Bean. It’s good to see folks understand that even without Flash for in-browser experiences, it remains valuable and compelling for app experiences via AIR.

    Yes it is good that technical folks are still aware that the features of Flash can be used within an Air wrapper on mobile. It’s not good that the stakeholders and decision makers are gunning (in an absence of tech related know-how) for native apps. Perhaps if Adobe assisted with passing the message down, the technologists passing the message up to the stake holders might get some more traction.
