Hi mark,
I want to play SWF video files in Android. Is there flash files support in android SDK 1.1? I think there is no flash files support in android SDK 1.0 . Do you have any idea when flash support will be add in android?
Thanks in advance.

Right now Android doesn't support flash.... But Adobe is working on Flash Player 10 which will run on Android..!!

Not very soon, AFAIK.

Also, unless Adobe is open-sourcing the Flash player, Flash playback will be limited to those device manufacturers that license the technology. Some will, some won't. I would not assume Flash playback is universal among all Android devices.
