Adobe Systems has debuted a new media playing software, Adobe Media Player 1.0 (AMP).

The move makes Adobe the latest player to get into the online video space, offering not only software that rivals Apple's Quicktime and Microsoft's Windows Media Player, but also video content such as episodes of "CSI: Miami" and "CSI: New York," along with other feature programming and music videos.

Based on Adobe's Flash technology, Adobe Media Player contains both content creation and playback components, and is available for Windows and Mac.

Adobe Media Player is available as a free download. Pricing information for the video content publishing software was not immediately available.
