Not content with having a dominant position in Web video, Adobe Systems on Monday is expected to launch Adobe Media Player for playing Flash videos offline. At the National Association of Broadcasters Show in Las Vegas next week, Adobe is expected to detail the new player for downloaded media which will work with Windows or Mac desktops. Currently, Adobe provides no way for playing back Flash videos outside of the browser.

Formerly code-named Philo, Adobe Media Player will let users subscribe to and play video podcasts published with RSS (Really Simple Syndication).
