Chrome dropping support for H.264=big win for Flash?

Flash Lite ports March 10th, 2011

Browsers, Devices- iPhone, Flash Lite 3, Flash Lite ports, H.264, mpeg and other media codecs June 23rd, 2008

Much is being discussed about why Flash is not available on iPhone, and why it is taking so long for Adobe and Apple to release it and if it even will be released. Flash Lite has already been ported to several different devices, so there is no reason why it can not be ported to iPhone.. Whatever the reason may be, I have analyzed various hardware and software factors that could impact Flash port and performance on iPhone. In reality, if there is management will, a Flash port on iPhone is very much possible. From the technology perspective, the only limiting factor could be the performance which can be overcome by using video acceleration. ......continue reading
