CorePlayer to add Flash playback to iPhone?

CorePlayer Flash on iPhone

CorePlayer Mobile may soon bring Flash video capabilities to the iPhone, as a report shows on its website that an iPhone and iPod touch version of the media client is in development, as well as for Google's Android OS. The multi-platform client offers mobile users access to Flash, and many different media types: H.264, MPEG, DivX, WMV, MP3, AAC, OGG, MOV, and ASX, among others. CoreCodec has not said when it will specifically launch the player, with a tag on its site merely stating "Coming Soon!"

While the client is meant to display dozens of different media types, CoreCodec does note that some platforms experience limitations on what can actually be viewed. Since details of the iPhone player are sparse, it can only be considered speculation that users will see Flash compatibility.

    If I could play TV shows and movies from Hulu on my iPhone, that would seriously rock.

    I would prefer Homestar Runner myself. =)

    This is NOT Flash

    This might more properly be described as a Video Player for flash files/streams, as the SDK explicitly forbids the processing of any scripting code.

    Not a good company

    I hate this company.

    They introduced their video player beta open source...

    ...then took it away after releasing their commercial product.

    A lousy way to gain publicity, they have no credibility with me because they lack integrity.
