Workaround For Flash’s Low FPS on Asus Transformer
Posted August 26, 2011 at 09:00 pm by egzthunder1
Quite possibly, one of the only annoyances that plagues the Honeycomb stock browser is its inability to properly use its full 30 fps potential on flash videos. At least, this seems to be the case for a few custom roms in certain devices like the Asus Transformer. After doing a bit of looking around, XDA member Roach2010 found something interesting regarding a file that does not get installed after updating Flash Player versions. Discuss, decided to experiment a bit with this file and found that placing it back where it belongs allows the stock browser to play any flash video at 30 fps.
So far, the results seem to be promising, but not a whole lot of people have tested this. The dev has put it in a flashable package, so please drop by the thread, download it, and leave some feedback behind. One last thing, in case you are wondering how to determine if you are indeed running at 30 fps, the dev has added a link to a YouTube video used to determine this.
The problem is that some devices somehow end up with a missing file that the Browser uses to talk to Flash Player. In my case if I clear the Browser data and reinstall the latest version of Flash Player from the market the config file does not get recreated.
