Although Adobe’s Flash technology is still incredibly popular among website designers it is facing a bleak future as developers move to newer HTML5-based media formats. On top of that Apple’s Steve Jobs has declared Flash a complete no-go on any future iPhone and iPad products.
Which leaves Adobe in a difficult position. Flash will continue to live on through the many millions of websites that already use it but new websites are likely to look for alternatives to ensure that they are compatible with as wide a range of devices as possible.
Smokescreen reads the Flash binaries, decompresses them, extracts the video, audio and image components and recomposes them as animated SVGs, or scalable vector graphics. SVGs can be viewed on most modern browsers.
According to the developers Smokescreen can be used by developers for any type of Flash content such as banner advertising and other animated content.
Smokescreen demonstrations can be viewed on the Smokescreen site.
