Episode 1 – Flash Player 10 for Developers

Welcome to the first episode of Drunk on Software – a new video podcast where James Ward and Jon Rose get together to discuss all aspects of software and share beverages.

In this episode Jon interviews James on the October 2008 release of Flash Player 10. James shares details about the four primary advancements that are of interest to software developers: Pixel Bender, 3D Effects, Advanced Text Layout, and changes to File Reference API.

[Update: We’ve moved to blip.tv which has an iTunes feed.]

For this episode we are trying the Viddler.com video hosting site. In the future we will also setup an iTunes feed and may publish audio only versions. Let us know how this video works and what other formats and technologies you would like us to use.

    Very useful video! PDF Generation on the client could help solve the major printing issues, so I am hoping AlivePDF can be very succesful. By the way the link to there site is: http://alivepdf.org/

    Great initiative. I’d like to hear a little more about the scotch being quaffed, and you might consider starting the interviews towards end of the bottle to get the real inside scoops…

    Oh, and for anyone that may know Jon and James, a pair of clip mic’s would make a wonderful Christams Gift :O)

    Thanks Peter.

    BTW: I just got a new bluetooth mic. So starting with episode 3 the audio quality will be much better.
