Right now various manufacturers and chipset vendors are porting FL3.1 "StageCraft" to their platforms. However it is still too early to have a forum for these, all of them are unannounced and some time away.
Flash Lite 3.1 is not dead, we announced an OTA version for millions of smartphones this week. Check it out on Adobe Labs.
Maintaining the aspect ratio of a video for mobile platforms is difficult to integrate due to wildly varying screen sizes. It's important to encode and test video at the right ratio and bitrate for each devices to get the best experience.
TV's with flash lite 3.1 will be available in the third quarter of this year. Seems that developers need the info now since some of these devices could be shipping with applications.
"Maintaining the aspect ratio of a video for mobile platforms is difficult to integrate due to wildly varying screen sizes."
If you could maintain aspect ratio or even scale the video object then their is no issue with a plethora of screen formats.
If you are unable to scale a video object when flashlite 3.1 is decoding h.264 or flv video then what is the point. You will not be able to truly navigate web video content. Content publisher will still have to encode specifically for each device making whats available to the flashlite user limited or just not available.

after running some emulations in device central scaling of the video object dynamically was a success. Maintaining aspect ratio is a 'breez'. Now lets wait to see the performance of a h.264 software decode when ported to a device. Fingers crossed.
I think performance wont be hampered if the playback small screen videos are ok during the emulation. :-)
