Adobe Media Player is Still a Useless Demo

Posted by Charles | October 3, 2007 .

The RIA technologies and tools are born to deal with multimedia. That’s why we start having great tools such Anywhere.FM, which I mentioned a while ago. At desktop, the duel, Microsoft Media Player and Real One, is still holds the de facto status, even though all the cool kids are playing online toys these days. What Adobe’s answer to the media worlds is its newly re-prerelease Adobe Media Player (AMP), which is developed in Adobe AIR.

The installation is super fast! Once it started, the UI is in web browser style so that the “workflow” is like browsing contents. It has a lot less features than either Microsoft Media Player or Real and no right click either. I can’t find anywhere on the UI to allow me search or start playing my music or connect to internet music stations, etc. There might be ways to do all I mentioned but the fact that I can’t find them fast just rendered the media player useless to me.

The verdict, after all, this is merely a reasonably good AIR demo but useless media tools, considering there are lots of other choices and many in Flash too.

Try harder, Adobe!
