    Adobe has today announced at the IBC trade show in Amsterdam that it is launching Adobe Flash Media Server 4.5 and Adobe Flash Access 3.0, according to Boy Genius Report, neither of which need Apple’s approval in order for it to work. Apple famously does not allow Flash on any of its devices, of course, meaning that iPhone and iPad users still occasionally come across videos when surfing the web that they can’t watch, which can be a little frustrating. Flash Media Server 4.5 means that website publishers can now deliver content using a single stream that is suitable both for devices that are able to show Flash, such as Android tablets, for example, and also for iOS, non-Flash devices. Publishers who fork over $4,500 for Adobe Flash Media Server, which is available now, will then be able to stream Flash content to iOS devices, meaning that iOS Safari browser support for Flash (which is never going to happen!) is not necessary.

    So hopefully this means that we’ll be seeing less of those annoying messages telling us we need to download Flash on our iPads and iPhones when we’re trying to view a video!

    I would seriously take this advice. We do not like to close Maura's threads ~ we will just delete your post and distribute appropriate sanctions.

    Can I ask a question to the mods/experts? How do you see this solution impacting the ios world?

    As long as flash content publishers adapt this technology, will we final users be able to watch their material as easily as on a pc/mac?

    If Adobe had priced the server software at FREE, they might have seen a high enough adoption rate to be interesting and save Flash. As it is priced now, it's going to be a non event in my opinion.
