Anyone else prefer the old HTC Sense Flash from 2.1 over the Official Flash of 2.2?
I was just wondering if anyone else out there feels the same way I do about the updated Flash in 2.2. For me, I really don't like it. I prefer the 2.1 HTC Sense Flash player that was in 2.1 over this official update.
Here's a few reasons why I miss 2.1 HTC Sense Flash Player:
- Hold finger on flash window and it prompts you to go to full screen. LOVE that feature! 2.2 doesn't handle it like that and I can't find a way to make it do that.
- While in full screen, you can pinch-zoom in or out on the fullscreen video.
- Also while in this mode, you can easily move the time inidcator along the timeline. The 2.2 official Flash player seems to only allow the flash video to play as an imbedded boxed window. if you try to interact with the video timeline, it only sees it as a single touch to the whole Flash field, which is pointless when trying to jump around the timeline.
Anyone else have these issues?
Anyone share these complaints?
Is there a way to setup 2.2 Flash to mimick these behaviors that I just haven't discovered yet?
Am I a whiny, ungrateful *******? ( <--- on second thought... no need to answer that one)

May I ask how you view Flash full screen now?
Are you able to manipulate the timeline in the imbedded video when it's full-screen?
I'm just wondering if I'm missing something very obvious with the new Flash in 2.2.
To me it seems... lacking... compared to what HTC had functioning in the 2.1 HTC Flash Lite 4 application.

Besides, Flash 10.1 is far more compatible, plays far more video/flash content, is much faster, uses less power, and has an on-demand option.

You can long hold on the Flash window and you will see a little box appear on the top left which gives you the option to go full screen.
As for the timeline issue, I totally agree with you.
And if you want to pinch to zoom, don't go into full screen mode, just double tap to enlage it to fit your screen size.

I have on-demand active already.
My biggest gripes are the full screen option and the manipulation of a videos timeline/timebar when viewing it.
The full screen option seems to still be there, but no matter which way you view the streaming video, you still cannot manipulate the timebar. It bites when you are watching something like Tosh.0 clips and want to jump back for a quick replay. No can do... you have to restart from the beginning.
Well, here's hoping that Dolphin HD's big update (coming soon!) addresses the issue.
