Adobe adds HTTP Streaming for iOS devices

Every iOS user has probably felt the need for an official Adobe Flash plugin, now Adobe has added HTTP Live Streaming to Flash Media Server thus making it possible for iOS devices like the iPhone and the iPad to view flash files. This new update made by Adobe will generate a HTML5 compatible stream that will allow devices that don’t have the Adobe plugin installed to view flash files.

Adobe also presented recently the next version of Adobe Flash media live encoder, this tool will capture a live broadcast stream and show it on devices such as Android powered devices, all the devices powered by iOS and also Samsung TVs.

This new feature introduced by Adobe will certainly improve the browsing experience of users that use an iOS powered device such as the iPhone and the iPad.
Here is the official Adobe announcement…
“As we continue to evolve this technology we will be adding support for another format, HTTP Live Streaming (HLS). HLS is an MPEG2 transport stream (container) used by devices such as the Apple iPad 2. By adding support for HLS within the Flash Media Server, Adobe is reducing the publishing complexity for broadcasters who need to reach browsers supporting HLS through HTML5 (such as Safari) or devices where Adobe Flash is not installed. Where Flash is installed, Flash Media Server packages the stream using MPEG4-fragments (F4F) to deliver video over HTTP to Flash.”
