it's quite crazy, that this bug: https://bugbase.adobe.com/index.cfm?event=bug&id=2951115 made it all the way from Beta to RC1 to final AIR 3.0 without being fixed.
(It was created end of August, first comment from Adobe was end of September...)
It is a regression in the webcam parts of AIR 3.0, and we have reproduced it on Windows and OSX with all kinds of webcams and both old video codec and h.264.
This completely negates the great enhancements h.264 brought to us for video quality by letting the video appear as if it has spasms.
So please speed up fixing this bug - since AIR 3.0 has come out, our customers are quite upset after we told them "with AIR 3.0 video quality will get a huge boost"...
And btw - anyone else experiencing this issue - and might have a workaround?
Thank you very much for the update. It's good to hear that it has been fixed - can't wait for the next release then. Do you have any information on when it will be available? No definite date needed, but would it be more like days, weeks or month?
Our problem is, that we delivered a working product with AIR 2.7 to our customers, and even though many where sceptic that AIR/Flash would be the right platform, we proved them wrong - But we also did announce AIR 3.0 as a major breakthrough in video quality, which it is, no doubt, if it weren't for this bug.
I'll keep my fingers crossed that the update will be released soon
