Hi,

We are using Flash as the presentation layer for one of the applications we are developing (for WM5 device). The "rest" of the code is being written in C# CF. We have tested it with Flash Player 7 installed onto the device and it worked as expected but the performance was poor.

I was wondering, as Flash Lite 3.1 is a much newer player, if it would have more optimizations to run smoothly on that sort of device (ARM Processor).

I tried to find any benchmark on the internet which would compares Flash Lite 3.1 and Flash 7 for PPC, but I had no joy.

I imagine Flash Lite 3.1 being MUCH faster than that old Flash 7 for PPC.

As far as I know now I can have Flash Lite 3.1 installed on the device, just like we can with Flash 7 for PPC. Am I right in saying that?

Flash Lite have always had issues with licensing... :(

Hope 3.1 doen's have those limitations.

Any help will be appreciated.

Cheers

Use the all new Distributable Flash Lite 3.1 Player

Flash Lite 3.1 is really fast at displaying graphics compared to Flash 7 :-)
