e-Clippings (Learning As Art): Want RealPlayer without ads? Thank You BBC!

Mark Oehlert

According to this article in the Washington Post, the BBC required Real to produce a version of its player without ads. While the article doesnt give a direct link, I think this is the one here - of course I cant install Real Player at work so Ill have to wait until I get home or rely on someone out there for confirmation that this version of the player is sans ads but Im hopeful.

How to Convert Flash-Based Websites to HTML5 Right Now!

Hurix Digital

Further, some of the most popular internet browsers such as Google Chrome and Mozilla Firefox have blocked Adobe Flash technology for speed and security reasons. Converting Flash-based websites to HTML5 has become an inevitable necessity for businesses worldwide as Flash has almost faded away.

Multimedia experiences growing stronger in HTML5

Aptara

The movement away from using Flash in both internal and external content by businesses has been slowed by one important factor: This language has been seen as the primary distribution method for rich multimedia such as audio and video. This attachment to multimedia means businesses were waiting for a viable alternative way to send out their multimedia communications - and it appears they have received one in the form of HTML5. Firefox joins the crowd.

Lessons of history

Jay Cross

A few weeks ago I reluctantly downloaded Real Player onto my Mac; it was the only way to see a presentation I really wanted to watch. And Firefox began crashing. Firefox continued to crash, as did Keynote, Adobe, SnapShot, others. How do the cowboys at Real stay in business Why do I hate RealNetworks? Let me count the ways. #1 1 You must provide a credit card number even though you’re welcome to drop out before charges begin.

Flash: an End of an Era – What You Need To Know

Aptara

In 1996 Macromedia first introduced the Flash Player, developed to play videos, animations, and audio and to support enhanced interactivity in web browsers. Over the years web browsers matured and so did Flash Player, which became the most widely used plug-in to play multimedia elements on a web page. Frequent updates to Flash Player, and increases in its usage provided hackers with an opportunity to exploit the security vulnerability of Flash and to hack systems.

Extend eFront with modules for fun and profit

eFront

In the software world we call extensible programs “modular”, and their distinct units of functionality “modules” When those modules are installed separately and after the installation of the basic software, they are also called “plug-ins” and “add-ons” (think of browser add-ons/plug-ins, from the Flash Player and IE toolbars to the rich Firefox add-on ecosystem).

Rich content being viewed on mobile devices

Aptara

Businesses are gravitating toward rich content to spread their messages. On seeing how effective content is at attracting consumer attention, businesses all began to use this as a promotional tactic. Major players switch sides. The source explained that as long as users are running an up-to-date browser such as Chrome or Firefox's latest beta, they will see the same video content as always, just without any need for the Flash plugin.

e-Clippings (Learning As Art): Single-Site Browsers: Interesting Design Development or Battle for the Desktop?

Mark Oehlert

MSFT, Adobe and Firefox are among the big players developing ways to run Web apps (e.g. TechCrunch has a great article which looks at the major efforts through the lens of Firefoxs effort - Prism. ZDNet has an article that also looks at Prism and the idea that it isalready available as an extension in the beta versions of firefox 3. But Prism has one big advantage: akiller app in the form of Firefox.

For the My-Walk Throughs option (see screen shot), that exact box on the left side of the screen is available only as a Firefox extension.
