Flash Lite 3 for digital home, is now available for TI platform. The port is optimized for h.264 video and AAC audio using TI Codec engine. This allows you to play Flash video in 30 fps at D1 resolution. The port allows for streaming content using HTTP and RTMP protocols. We have kept the design modular so that the customers can potentially get the development kits from us and integrate their own libraries if they choose to.The port is tested on TI DaVinci DM 6446 processor and runs on Linux. Of course the port is done on Linux framebuffer as most of the embedded devices require a thin blitting layer.

ARM announced today that Flash 10 has been optimized for ARM Cortex-A series of processors. This is great news. In our experience, Cortex-A handles Flash content very well and we have been able to obtain satisfactory experience on a VGA or even higher resolution monitors for video. I hope that the optimized version takes advantage of the NEON instruction set freeing up CPU to do other tasks. There are however several unanswered questions: ......continue reading
