I’m always searching for more advanced uses of desktop-bound RIAs, like AIR, Silverlight Out-of-Browser, and JavaFX’s out of browser options. Thus far, most examples have really just been web pages on the desktop that, at best, have off-line modes or are closed-up video players. It was nice, then, to fine a use of AIR that took moved beyond these uses in Konductor’s AIR client. As Derek Zarbrook walks us through – first in an interview and then a demo – the AIR client hooks up to the Konductor hosting system to give non-designers an easy, but controlled way to update their web sites.
(As a side note, this is the first time we’ve used VideoPress to host videos. What do you think?)
Disclosure: Adobe is a client.
