Adobe Systems today announced that its Open Source Media Framework (OSMF), part of the project previously code named Strobe, is now freely available as open source software. OSMF is part of the Adobe Flash Platform open source initiative for developers, media companies and publishers to build more robust, feature-rich media players optimized for the Adobe Flash Platform.

The OSMF architecture enables developers to create unique playback experiences that can leverage third-party plug-ins for advertising, reporting metrics and content delivery along with standard video player features such as playback controls, video navigation, buffering and dynamic streaming.
In related news, Akamai and Adobe are collaborating on the Open Video Player initiative, previously founded by Akamai, and the release of OSMF technologies. The goal is to ensure a consistent framework for media player development and to help strengthen the industry shift towards open standards.

"Open Source Media Framework complements and solidifies Akamai’s Open Video Player initiative," said Tim Napoleon, chief strategist of digital media at Akamai, in a prepared statement. "OSMF leverages code from Akamai’s Open Video Player and Adobe’s expertise and resources."
