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. I've also taken a short break from blog but I hope to restart it in the near future. I am no longer functioning as Adobe's Scaling Partner and looking for new opportunities. If you are looking for a technically savvy, energetic business development, marketing or sales person, please email me.

Selling custom wallpapers

Browsers, Desktop Flash Player, Devices- Cellphones, Devices- Handheld, Devices-PC, Flash 10, Flash Enabled Devices, Mobile applications, Mobile phones August 21st, 2009

Flash Lite has been popular among mobile users for wallpaper applications. Wallpapers are good for generating an ‘impression’ on the user. I don’t think anybody has figured out a way to monetize it successfully yet, but this one company I came accross who creates Custom Twitter Backgrounds may have something. These guys are trying to create a custom wallpaper for twitter that can be your business logo, message- whatever. What if everything was wallpapered? Twitter, Facebook, myspace- and if you were to use that on your every personal device such as cellphones, PC, laptop? Twitter is already being used by several businesses to market their product successfully. Add a wallpapered logo to that and make it portable accross devices, you now have a branding strategy in place! ......continue reading

Blackberry Flash port just a rumor

Devices- Cellphones, Flash 10, Mobile applications, Mobile phones August 20th, 2009

Well- John Dowdell from Adobe left a comment on my earlier post that these are just rumors and I agree with that. The original report does not confirm the source and ‘Boy Genius Report’ itself is not a very reputable news source. So unfortunately we’ll have to sit and wait till Blackberry comes out with Flash! ......continue reading

Devices- Cellphones, Devices- Handheld, Flash 10, Flash Enabled Devices, Flash Lite 3, Flash Lite ports, Mobile applications, Mobile phones, Operating Systems August 20th, 2009

I don’t know if this is just a rumor or if there is any truth to this. I came accross a report on Endgadget that talked about Blackberry adding ‘full’ flash support (I guess that means they’ll have Flash 10) to their browser.  The source they sight is ‘Boy Genius Report’ and I located the source here. It looks as though the actual devices touting Flash player will be available sometimes next year. ......continue reading

Some of you have must have seen the documents published by Adobe on devnet that talk about several details of the Flash Lite digital home platform. One of the powerful features of the Flash Lite for digital home is the ability to be able to extend Actionscript. You can create your own Actionscript commands, define them and implement corresponding logic in Flash Lite code. For example, you can have a command to change volume of TV, or channel or fetch updated data for an ad- etc. etc. This is a very powerful feature and is available for Flash Lite on digital home devices. ......continue reading

Boxee for digital home

Devices- Embedded, Devices- iPhone, Flash Enabled Devices, Flash Lite for digital home, Flash Lite ports, OS- Embedded linux, OS- Windows Mobile/CE August 4th, 2009

Here’s a cool application for digital home.  Boxee is designed to be used on a TV screen and remote. Boxee runs on your laptop and via specialized UI, allows one to bring up applications, games, photos etc. on the TV.  It is still running on your laptop and is only available for Mac OS, Windows, Ubuntu and Apple TV. There is a remote control application available for iPhone. (Without spending time reading specs, my guess is that to be able to extend this to use general purpose remotes, you’d need some kind of special hardware/receiver on your laptop.) It requires a CPU running at 1 GHz or faster. Boxee is also using Twitter like ‘follow me’ model in which you can follow other users and recommend them shows. ......continue reading
