Similarly, the Flash Player plugin uses adaptive and optimized bitrate streaming, which also supports RTMP and HDS technologies. Therefore, the tool is able to run multimedia-rich files with smooth compression. Create, view, and edit multimedia content easily. Adobe Flash Player is a great choice to view multimedia files in a web browser. Applications created on Win and Mac Projector will continue to work after 2020, since they do not rely on a web browser, Flash Player plug-in, Adobe AIR, or any other platform runtime. That is, I can continue to develop my applications and export as a projector (.exe and.app) and use them even after 2020.
