Flash Support in PlayBook Simulator

Hi, just wondering if anyone is having issues getting flash to run under the simulator.


Specifically mic and video flash content does not display or crashes the simulator. Has anyone had any luck getting mic and video to work in the simulator?  We are also having problems getting the video and mic to work on a real playbook. Does the playbook have any limitations with regards to mic and video support for flash?

Re: Flash Support in PlayBook Simulator

hey mkdropbox,


welcome to the forums! im not sure what you are asking -- are you saying it's not working via the browser? or are you creating an AIR / WebWorks app and it's not working as intended?


If it's an app you are creating, check to make sure you have included the proper permissions in the blackberry-tablet.xml file or config.xml if you are using webworks. otherwise the mic and sound most likely will not work. good luck!
