Adobe Flash Coming To Apple iOS, iPads and iPhones [blogs.computerworld.com]
Adobe appeared at Europe's NAB equivalent, IBC this week to introduce Adobe Flash Media Server 4.5 and Adobe Flash Access 3.0. There's a whole bunch of detail pertaining to these releases here, but how Adobe has delivered Flash support to iOS devices is absolutely the right way forward: it has enabled the server to stream a version of a Flash asset to an iPhone or iPad. Flash never needs to run on a mobile device again.

"With Adobe Flash Media Server 4.5, media publishers now have a single, simple workflow for delivering content using the same stream to Flash-enabled devices or to the Apple iPhone and iPad."

In other words, Adobe's solution repackages content in real-time, changing the protocol to suit the target device, HTTP Dynamic Streaming or HLS, for example.

It's a deceptive headline.

All this means is that Flash Media Server will serve H.264-encoded video to iOS devices and flash video to everything else.

It has nothing to do with Flash Player, or any other non-media flash content (games, interactive apps, etc.).

The number of times that I've missed Flash in the last 3 years of owing my iPhone could be counted on one hand. No big deal to me. I don't know if most iPhone/iPhone owners feel the same.

Sometimes I wish we had an agree/disagree button next to each reply so I wouldn't have to create a new reply just to say I agree with whoisgregg.

This is just Adobe's attempt to remain relevant in a world where Flash for videos will thankfully no longer be needed.

I notice it frequently. My ipad is the only place I really would watch videos on a website, so I'm never really happy with the limitation.

I am unlikely to buy another ipad as a result. Have considered buying another tablet for this reason. Not having flash isn't the end of the world, but it's a substantial annoyance - it's an artificial restriction placed on something I bought that shouldn't be there.

Amen.
