Welcome to Embeddedflash.com. Its 2014 and the landscape in multimedia world has changed quite a bit HTML5 standard is complete and Flash is no longer existent on mobile.

Sony Mylo running optimized On2

Flash Enabled Devices, Flash Lite 3 February 20th, 2008

There’s a recent announcement from On2 that optimized version of their VP6 codec has been used in Sony Mylo device. I believe this is the first announced Flash Lite device using optimized On2 codec.

Video is often CPU intensive, and in our experience, even a good CPU has choked running full screen video- especially at Mylo’s resolution at 800×480. My guess is that its gotta be more than 400MHz CPU, most likely ARM11 class. I have no idea how much RAM there is- but I bet its plenty. Older generation Mylo ran ARM9 from Freescale and Linux OS /QTopia. ......continue reading

Youtube.com and Flash Lite 3 on embedded devices

If we buffered for say 30 seconds before playing, the video played fine. ......continue reading
