I’ve been saying it’s dead for quite a while, but maybe I’m wrong.
As for FLV files embedded into websites, this may be over. FLV files have been kept alive by television and DVD rips, but as for a web industry tool, it’s dead.
I’ve kept an eye on Adobe for a while, wondering when they would pull the plug on Flash Professional. After all, they have some new tools that act like Flash Professional, but spits out HTML5:
So will Adobe’s Edge edge out Adobe Professional?
Right now, it looks like Adobe hopes to use this along side Flash Professional. If you watch the video (above) at around 4min, you’ll see an extension that allows Flash Professional to export into HTML5.
From the Adode blog:
Although the traditional use of building websites from Flash looks to be near extinction, it looks as though Adobe found a way to breath new life into Flash Professional.
Maybe I won’t have to uninstall it after all?
What do you think?
