Next Generation RichFLV preview

I`m currently loaded with exciting work so i rarely feel the need to work on my private projects like RichFLV. But today was one of those days.
While making RichFLV more stable i started working on a completely new version. One of the needed features is support for editing multiple flv files.
I want to be able to import some flv files and stitch them together and even edit and cut the individual clips and later export them to one single flv file.

Well it`s working! Have a look at this feature in this very early preview screencast I made. Don`t worry this is not how RichFLV will look like it`s just a dummy to test the functionality 😉
I think it`s really crazy that you can do stuff like this with AIR – it just rocks!

A basic implementation will be added to the current RichFLV next week (or so :-)). You`ll be able to import another flv and stitch them together but without the advanced control of individual clips.

this is how the new timeline looks:


RichFLV for AIR Beta 3 released

I made a quick update to RichFLV. It should now work with Beta 3 of AIR.
Haven`t really had the time to make lot of bugfixes so let me know if you need something fixed.

You`ll need Flash Player 9 Update 3 for the seanless install to work. If you don`t have it yet you can download the air file manually here.

Flex/AIR rocking Javapolis

I have been relatively quite the last weeks mainly because my current project was to be kept secret until today.
Today I presented together with my current client Stephan Janssen the result of 5 months Flex and AIR development.
Boy when do you get the chance to present you work in front of 3000! Java developers 😉

It was really amazing and the feedback is really overwhelming. We presented at the Keynote right after the Adobe team (Bruce Eckel, James Ward, Christoff Rooms).
I think most of the Java people liked it and are now seriously looking at Flex and AIR.

So some notes about the actual project we presented. It is version 2 of Parleys a website dedicated to present presentations from various Java conferences.
The current client (version 1) was build with Java Script and is now rebuild with Flex and AIR. The actual application will be available as soon as AIR gets out of Beta so beginning 08.
