Ive been pretty busy last couple of days and I completely missed new public beta released of Flash Player 9 (codenamed “Moviestar”) which is available now on labs. I suspected something like this could happen,when Adobe introduced video hardware acceleration and dual core support in last beta update. Well, together with the bunch of fixes, component caching and full screen improvements, new beta 3 of Flash Player now supports HD capable H.264 video and HE-AAC audio codecs - or in other words very limited sub set of MPEG-4, 3GP and QuickTime movie support. You can load and play .mp4,.m4v,.m4a,.mov and .3gp files using the same NetStream API you use to load FLV files. Anyways Tinic Uro has a great post on his blog covering all the technical details of this new update.
