    Flash-player in Net TV

    Hello!

    I'm trying to find out if there are possible to use flash-player in the web-browser app in netTV?

    YouTube and Vimeo are accessible, but my consern are about broadcast station services. Many of our suppliers of broadcast TV gives you the oportunity to watch show afterwards.
    When do we get this feature in NetTV?

    I'm keen to make this service possible. And hope that it's most about a timerelated matter.

    Regards!

    Hi,

    Flash player is not supported/not integrated in the TV web browser.

    Hi,

    yeah - an Apple will be also dead in several weeks - but wait... they are already dead, since they also don't have Flash support :-))

    Flash on TVs was discussed several times here in the forum. If you search you should find a few threads and different thoughts. Then everybody can build his own opinion.
    Mine is, that Flash is deprecated and not needed on modern TVs.

    Although we can think that Flash is deprecated, there is still a huge amount of media available in the Net that uses it.

    Obsolete will be the Philips tv this year and earlier, because all the brands launched its flash-compatible tv (Samsung and LG already are compatible).
    Almost the majority of content on the internet are in flash player, including Youtube. So obsolete already are the Philips tv this year.

    Even if flash support would be there, how to use the flash gimmicks. I think to be able to use every flash app you would need a mouse at minimum.
    With 2011 TVs you can connect a mouse and keyboard, but is this really what you want? A PC as it is state of the art for several decades, but having the monitor at the other end of the room as the only difference between modern TV and old-style PC.

    I expect a UI which can be easily used with a very simple and tiny remote. To write longer text, I will use a PC or Notebook, for quick URL typing, I think MyRemote app or the SMS-style input on the remote is enough. There are a lot of people writing longer SMS with just a number pad.

    If flash is only needed to show flash videos. The content provider can easily replace that. Flash would be much overhead for simply showing videos. The Adobe back-end software does already support that.

    Probably the tv Philips of 2012 will be compatible with flash because the competition requires. Normal will be that Philips does not upgrade their tv 2011 and earlier. Therefore this year tv are already obsolete.
    And if the tv from philips in 2012 are not compatbles with flash then Philips will sell less and less tv.

    Regards.

    I agree with you guys who thinks this will be needed to keep position in the competition from other cempetors of home electronics.
    But I don't understand that it needs a new series of products to offer the oportunity of flashplayer, adobe air or quicktime. It's more about software-updates.
    I hope and belive that this will be the outcome of this kind of discussions and forums. To improve theese products to be up to date. Due to the service that you can update your garments software gives you the oportunity of this services.

    I think this link is helpful for this topic:
    http://www.broadbandtvnews.com/2011/...v-environment/

    In short words, adobe is not willing to support flash on TVs anymore, as it also won't support it on mobile devices.

    No Flash and no HTML5 on our 2010 TVs.
    What's left is a simple (but expensive) TV, with a useless internet browser.
