I’ve been checking up on OSMF (Open Source Media Framework) periodically, but found that many of their examples / samples don’t work at the moment (their APIs have been in flux). If you’re just looking for a quick way to get OSMF (v.9) up and running in Flex here’s a bit of code that should help.

For the 4th year in a row Betsy Weber, TechSmith’s Chief Evangelist, and I are on a spring road trip to visit the Flash community. I picked up a Flip Mino HD a couple of weeks back which means a real stab at some seriously rich lifestreaming…

Fast forward to our arrival in Indianapolis 4 hours later and I got a quick chance to ask Betsy and Nick why we were there:
The keynote is at 8:30 AM (just over 5 hours from now as I type). I’ll update as possible.
There’s an updated version of ThumbGenie in the wild that sports a new skin designed by Nick Gorsline (aka Gorz). It was the first Flex component skin for Nick and first Illustrator-to-Flex workflow for moi. I think after after the experience we’re both looking forward to some Catalyst.
In addition to the new look, videos are now scaled in the preview window to match the output dimensions. This should make it easier to get a handle on what thumbnails of various sizes will actually look like.
