Flash Video On Android Is Terrible.

I know, I’m a Flash hater and always posting just how bad it is. And you’re right, I’m no fan of Flash on OS X – it’s been a dog for years and even with hardware H.264 acceleration it’s only marginally better. I also don’t like Flash because it is still controlled by one company and not an open standard.

That said, there’s a lot of value still in Flash, but seriously Adobe, you’ve been promising Flash on a smartphone for a long time now and complaining that Apple won’t let it on their iPhone, except you haven’t actually delivered something worth putting on an iPhone yet.

Above I’ve quoted two different reports of the current state of Flash on Android. It will get better before final release, but from the reports that needs to be a quantum leap.
