What can you see in adobe flash player 10.2?
Here are some of the significant new features or enhancements promised in adobe flash player 10.2.
- Stage Video hardware acceleration – This new video hardware acceleration mode promises a dramatic improvement in video playback performance. This mode will significantly decrease processor and memory usage, while enabling higher frame rates and greater pixel fidelity and quality.
- Support for Internet explorer 9 hardware acceleration – Microsoft promised a new browser IE 9, which can harness the power of the computer’s graphic processor and some good features in its windows 7 OS. While you can download internet explorer 9 and enjoy “the beauty of the web”, adobe has built its flash player 10.2 to take advantage of hardware accelerated graphics in internet Explorer 9 and improves the performance of its graphics. It also enables seamless composition by utilizing the hardware rendering surfaces.
- The new flash player will also support full screen mode with dual or multiple monitors. If you use a windows 7 dual monitor setup for multi-tasking, you will find this feature to be very useful, as you can now watch any flash content in full-screen and also work on another parallel display (monitor).
- Last but not the least, flash developers can now define custom native mouse cursors in their flash apps and adobe flash player 10.2 will support them.
