Flash video to Mobile devices?

Filed under: Flash — Wrote by Campbell on Sunday, February 11th, 2007 @ 11:52 am

It seems fitting that im sitting in a tent out the back of a Vodafone stand at X-Air in wellington working a system that I made called Videmo that brings Customer Pxt, Txt and mobile video to the big screen at the event, and the news I have seen it that Vodafone are going to launch a you tube for the mobile [Via: I2Fly.com]. COOL!!!

I thought I might be of interest to people that the current creators of the flash video codec On2 have are working on playback of flash video on handsets. From all accounts it looks like a realtime encoder from FLV to 3GP. More good news for VIDEMO.

"Flash video for Mobile: A ubiquitous Flash video experience will be demonstrated with Flash video playback on mobile handsets and embedded processors for set top boxes and other portable and mobile devices. Flash video based on On2's VP6 compression schemes licensed by Adobe for Flash Player 8 and later, is the predominant format for Internet video." [LINK]

As a side note this points to some sort of Set top box IPTV offering in the future from Adobe! Me being a Film student in the Tech sector can only see good things happening with this. I have seen a few mentionings about this out in the blogosphere and Message boards but Adobe seems to be clamping down on any information leaks :o ( I supose they are going to be competing with the big boys so all that effort is needed to get a good launch.

Ok some photos: First up videmo loaded with thousands of txts:

Me about to reply to a group of them:

 

The setup out front:

The boys here have just finished dancing.
