Updated Adobe Flash Media server streams to iOS

Adobe will be demonstrating an update to its Flash Media Server at the National Association of Broadcasters (NAB) show this week to enable publishers to stream video to all sorts of mobile devices. No longer will they be limited to Flash-supported devices like Android smartphones or the PlayBook tablet, but Samsung TVs, and even iOS devices like the iPad and iPhone will be able to stream such content. Currently, a lot of sites use Flash to serve video content online, so folks on the iPad have been denied access to such content unless the publishers have decided to re-encode their videos for HTML5 video playback. The new Flash Media server update will help video publishers to just focus on the content and leave all the encoding to Adobe. Props to Adobe for developing workarounds to having no Flash on iOS instead of giving Apple the cold shoulder and ignoring the platform. Hit the break to watch a video demonstration of the new Flash Media Server:
