This app (consistent with most Adobe apps) has as awful update system. It never automatically detects when a new version is available and you can't download the updater. If you go to Adobe's site, no updater is available for download, it just launches the installed version. I'm stuck with version 1.1 until by some magic the application miraculously discovers that a new version is available. Totally lame.

Does function play any part in this software's design? Its behavior is odd and I am stuck with thumbnails of videos long gone, but which can't be removed. What on earth do we need this for other than to play yet another proprietary format.

Although the application identifies itself as version 1.7 - this web page identifies it as version 1.1.

There is nothing wrong about Adobe Air or this goodly coded application. It is the DESIGN which is horrible. There is no point releasing this software if you can't make idiotic content providers SERVE to places outside USA. So, guy clicks on Comedy Central content and instead of watching, he sees "not available". Completely idiotic and I don't understand comedy central people either. Why filter? They won't block the ads, "leech" flash content to keep on their HD, they are just people who wants a convenient way to watch media. There is no "extension" or whatever is available for media player unlike the browsers. Go get Miro instead or stick with iTunes podcasts. Miro, by nature has no geographic censoring and iTunes podcasts are global.

Shameful piece of "Mac" software. Bears no resemblance in behavior or appearance to proper OS X applications and is a laughable puzzle to use. If this is the direction Adobe's Creative Suite is headed, sell your stock now. Adobe Media Player illustrates perfectly why Flash/Adobe AIR is the worst possible software development platform known to man, woman or child.

This came with CS4, is on my disc and I've never launched it. However, if this uses Adobe Air, be forewarned! Installing Air to run TweetDeck made my perfectly stable Mac into a total mess. Not to mention Firefox crashing every 3 minutes, threads run wild, memory being eaten alive, and other shenanigans. Uninstalling Air and my Mac is back to it's normal "how long as it been since I restarted" self.

There is no way that it can crash Firefox. It is the point of multi tasking, multi user operating system which Apple spent years to develop. I don't know if you don't have any clue or simply part of a campaign to bad mouth Adobe air but please, stop suggesting ridicolous things like ordinary application crashing other application. Besides "hacks" or "input managers", there is NO software capable of doing such thing.

Really? I guess Firefox quitting when a link in a third party app was clicked and now that Air is uninstalled it doesn't just happened by accident? I don't really care what you think or what you say douche. I only reported my experiences after installing Air. end of story.

If Air installs a browser plug-in of some sort it absolutely could crash the whole browser, just as Flash can.

I'm quite speechless. I expect much more from Adobe. This is just... well it's simply not worth using. VLC or MPlayer are leaps and bounds better. And as far as downloading online content... I'd rather use iTunes or one of the many free sites out there for accessing such content. This is just a waste of hard drive space. The random file association crap is quite annoying. If you're having a dandy time trying to get your file associations back, use this free preference pane ~> http://macupdate.com/info.php/id/14618/rcdefaultapp The program hasn't been updated in a while, but it still does exactly what it says, even in Leopard. You can change the default system file associations at the click of a button.

Considering Adobe's propensity to create bloatware, I will not be downloading this.

This application sneaked it's way onto my system at some point, maybe along with Adobe Air which is another story. Without intervention it hijacked my application handling preferences for .flv files and had it not done so I imagine I would have weeded it out eventually. I use yFlicks for .flv files thankyouverymuch and it has lots of preferences and controls. As near as I can tell Adobe Media Player has just the basics. Plus it takes a long time to load and once loaded and playing a movie, it commands nearly 70% of CPU cycles compared to about 35% with yFlicks. I can't think of a single redeeming feature of this program except that is looks nice. I guess that deserves one star.

Content would also be nice, and some other then the current 'not available' and 'expired' content I'm getting here. Expired even with more then 20 days to go... Most likely a US only app again.

This app connects to a lot of websites (OK, TV channels) but also to doubleclick.net! Why? It's a poor quality, the app runs slow and blocks memory and just isn't worth it. Sorry, not useful. At least: Thanks for the Adobe Air Uninstaller.
