I have been visually comparing the performance of JavaFX and Flash for playing media using the cartoon Big Buck Bunny.

With the latest JDK and JavaFX SDK Big Buck Bunny takes between 5 - 10 seconds to start

With the latest Flash it starts instantly on YouTube:

Will/Can the start times be improved further for JavaFX?

Or is it that JavaFX needs something like Flash Media Server to stream videos to the JavaFX plugin?

The team is constantly striving to improve performance and that is a primary focus.

I can't comment on what you are seeing, but I have seen animations side-by-side where
JavaFX outperformed Adobe and Silverlight.
