7.5. RealFlash

RealFlash provides the ability to stream vector animations made in Macromedia Flash and their associated sound files over the Internet and into the RealPlayer. RealServer is equipped to stream the Flash and audio clips to RealPlayer such that the animation and sound remain synchronized throughout the duration of the stream.

As a rule, RealFlash is best suited for streaming linear presentations that have continuous audio and images synchronized along a timeline. The streaming nature of RealFlash limits the complexity and interactivity that can otherwise be incorporated into non-streaming Flash. Branching and allowing for user-initiated events, such as clicking and rollovers midstream, are not recommended. Movie clips—series of animations independent of the timeline—should not be used either.
