Finally Adobe Flash On iPhone/iPad

On 8th September 2011, Adobe announces Adobe Flash Media Server 4.5 and Adobe Flash Access 3.0. With the Flash Media Server 4.5, media publishers can deliver video contents to Apple's iPad and iPhone devices.
Just to recap, flash content is what Apple or rather Steve's most undesired content on the Apple products. Even the Macs does not come with pre-loaded flash programs. With Apple's straight out-of-the-box easy to use Mac OSX, omitting flash in the pre-loaded OSX is something huge. That comes to show how Steve dislike flash contents.

"Premium Video Streaming with Flash Media Server 4.5

Flash Media Server 4.5 expands on its mobile delivery options with the addition of iOS support and enables content owners to create HTTP content on the fly to reduce costs brought on by device proliferation. New features of Flash Media Server 4.5:

  • Delivery to iPad and iPhone enables businesses to use the same media and live streams to deliver full adaptive bit-rate experiences to platforms supporting Flash, as well as Apple devices, including iPad and iPhone.
  • Integrated Content Protection simplifies deployment and reduces infrastructure cost, enabling seamless streaming for advertising-funded online video.
  • On-demand Stream Packaging eliminates the need to prepare and protect assets ahead of time, reducing complexity and storage costs and simplifying publishing for businesses so they can use one set of source video to reach multiple downstream devices."

Update: Adobe Flash Media Server 4.5 only streams video content. That does not mean it will run Flash animations.
