ABC returns to Flash platform for premium online content
In case you’ve been visiting abc.com this week, and don’t have the Move Networks plug-in installed (or you can’t install it because you are running Safari 64 bit), ABC started to offer a Flash version of their player as fallback. ABC was one of the early adaptors of Flash Video, and then switched to Move Networks. It’s great to seem them moving back to Flash.
Just a couple of weeks ago, Fox.com switched from Move Networks to the Flash platform. With the support of HD video and FMS 3.5 dynamic streaming, Flash video is combining great user experience with excellent HD quality playback. It’s great to see the Flash platform becoming the de-facto standard for HD premium online playback across all major US media networks.
