Open Media Now


Open Media Now is a non-profit trade group established to serve persons and entities who share the common business interest of furthering the creation of an open media infrastructure. Our aim is to engage in a variety of projects that improve upon both the functionality of, and access to, open media solutions. A good summary of our goals is to simply say we are promoting an infrastructure that enables the creation, the streaming, and the viewing of digital content (using free software) in a legally conforming way. We strive to develop high-quality free software tools and to work actively within the legislative and regulatory communities to encourage an industry environment that provides for the free and open utilization of those tools.

The Open Media Now groups will be showing the Gnash SWF Movie player.

Gnash is a GPLv3'd SWF movie player and browser plugin for Firefox, Mozilla, and Konqueror. Gnash supports many SWF v7 features and ActionScript 2 & 3 classes. with growing support for SWF versions 8-10. Gnash also runs on many GNU/Linux distributions, embedded GNU/Linux, FreeBSD, NetBSD, OpenBSD, non x86 processors, and 64 bit architectures.
