Difference between Flash and Flash lite?[edit]

This article does not explicitly adress the question of the difference between Flash and Flash Lite. I found a reference to an older version (?) of this article that says that Flash lite supports a "stripped down version of Macromedia's own proprietary SWF format". The article should also answer in what way the version stripped down. And also what more differences exists between Flash Lite and Flash. --gnirre (talk) 07:34, 5 October 2009 (UTC)

Page name[edit]

Should we rebrand this as Adobe? Jeff schiller 22:44, 8 December 2005 (UTC)

Yes. The articles for all Adobe products (with the exception of this and ColdFusion) have Adobe in their title. ColdFusion has not yet been re-branded by Adobe, but Flash Lite has. This page should be moved back to Adobe Flash Lite. Caffeinepuppy 06:16, 29 October 2006 (UTC)

Is there a debugger?[edit]

Does flash lite have a debugger? I put together a Mobile development page, I'd be interested in any and all additions to the comparison chart. Benjaminhill 01:40, 27 February 2006 (UTC)

Flash lite is really Flash player 7, if you change the publish settings to Flash Player 7, you can debug using the standard Macromedia Flash 8 IDE debugger. --195.157.84.178 10:37, 13 September 2006 (UTC)

Dates[edit]

I'd like to see some dates in this article. It would rock to have some usage statistics. Mathiastck 22:53, 1 March 2007 (UTC)

Supported phones[edit]

I would love to see a list of phones that support flash lite, perhaps as a seperate page? I belive many Windows Mobile, and Series 60 Nokia phones have it, including browser support. IIRC Verizon supports Flash apps but no flash in the browser. Also the HTC hero, says official site: http://developer.sprint.com/site/global/develop/mobile_platforms/android/android.jsp Mathiastck (talk) 21:15, 27 October 2009 (UTC)

Flash support[edit]

This is Nokia's list of phones that support flash lite: " Please note that you need a device with Flash Lite 1.1 or Flash Lite 2 - such as any device with S60 3rd Edition (Nokia N92, Nokia N71, Nokia N80, Nokia E60, Nokia E61, Nokia E70, Nokia N91 Nokia 3250). " http://www.s60.com/business/productinfo/applicationsandtechnologies/flashlite?pbId=256 Mathiastck (talk) 01:19, 16 January 2008 (UTC)

Video Support[edit]

Does flash lite support any of the video standards used by Flash? How does it compare to the full Flash 7 player on the desktop? --86.3.43.187 (talk) 09:27, 7 September 2008 (UTC)

Flash Lite 3.0 which is based on Flash Player 8 supports FLVs like the ones used on Youtube and Google Video. Flash Lite 2.0 & 2.1 has no FLV support. Object404 (talk) 19:39, 24 September 2008 (UTC)

Audio and interactive elements without the use of JavaScript?[edit]

Adobe_Flash_Lite#Technical overview (middle of second paragraph) states that:

Unlike SVG, Flash Lite can add audio and interactive elements without the use of other technologies such as JavaScript.

Please clarify. In particular, how are these audio and interactive elements added?

My initial reading was that these were added using ActionScript (the aforementioned paragraph starts by stating which versions of Flash Lite support which versions of ActionScript). But the ActionScript page (second sentence) states that "[ActionScript] is a dialect of ECMAScript (meaning it has the same syntax and semantics of the more widely known JavaScript)". It's not much of a statement to say that Flash Lite doesn't need to use JavaScript when that's because it supports its 'cousin' ActionScript instead!

On the other hand, maybe Flash Lite can add audio and interactive elements in some native (non-scripted) fashion? If so, please explain (or point to an explanation).

Info about Flash Lite 4.0 http://anyhub.net/file/flash-lite-4-overview-v3.0.pdf Someone might want to integrate this... --84.202.73.232 (talk) 17:35, 13 July 2010 (UTC)

Discontinued Development[edit]

Is this the product that Adobe has announced it will end development of? That might be worth noting. --RossO (talk) 18:25, 1 December 2011 (UTC)
