WHAT ISN’T SUPPORTED IN THE FLASH PLAYER FOR POCKET PC?

Flash Player 6 support. At the time of this writing, the Flash Player 6 for the Pocket PC is not yet available, but devices are being deployed with the Flash 5 Player. Developers can use the Flash MX authoring environment to author content, but they must publish for the Flash 5 platform or to whatever version of the player is supported on the specific device. If using Flash MX and above to create content for the Flash Player 5 for Pocket PC 2002, some of the Flash MX ActionScript features may not be present. However, many new ActionScript features are still available.

Remember, the Flash Player for Pocket PC is an ActiveX Control. Registry edit programs for the Pocket PC that turn off ActiveX controls should be avoided because they will not allow the content to play. Also, be sure to keep Fit to Screen selected (see Figure 2.1). This setting is usually selected by default. When Fit to Screen is unselected the Flash content will not scale to a different size, but will produce unpredictable results such as causing scroll bars to appear, as well as moving the Flash movie off screen.
