    Flash performance inside mx:HTML in a Flex AIR app

    eagl0r Level 1

      Hi. I'm new to AIR development and after doing some basic tutorials I thought I'd make a little stream player app.

       

      The amount of tutorials on the web made me choose Flex / Flash Builder over HTML & JavaScript. When I built the player in Flex I saw performance was terrible when out of focus, I would say it drops to 3 fps if not less. Surprisingly when I downloaded someone else's similar app, his didn't have that problem. On closer inspection - he made it in HTML & JavaScript and HTML AIR apps dont suffer from the same problem.

       

      Is there a fix for this Flex performance problem?

       

      I've made a video demonstrating the difference between Flex & HTML for your convenience: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=OU2mfELhSC4.
