Top 10 video sessions: Adobe MAX 2010

Adobe MAX

Adobe MAX 2010. October 23-27, Los Angeles, CA

Like many of you, I’m unfortunately missing MAX this year (if you are there, why are you taking time to read my blog — get to a session and pay attention!) I had been scheduled to present HD Streaming with HTTP Dynamic Streaming but unforeseen circumstances have made it impossible for me to travel right now. So here we are — watching the keynote broadcasts and watching Twitter and blogs for breaking news.

If you are there, or you want to know what recordings to watch after MAX is over… here is a list of my top 10 recommended Flash video sessions this year:
