I have an application running in browser and as air(flex3/flex4.1 + air 2.6). Now we noticed the problem that our application upload stops when the tab, in which the application is running during a browser session, becomes inactive. In the air version similar happens when we minimize it to taskbar. Anyone has some thoughts on how to prevent that flashplayer(10.1) behavior? In both versions the calls are handled async. and the swf, of the browser version, is embeded using swfObject. I know streaming is a seperated topic, but it never appeared to me that a youtube video stoped loading while i switched tabs, so there should be a workaround.
all the best, florian
Unfortunately, there is no way to prevent that behavior in the browser.
Does it really stop? Or just slow down?
In AIR, you might be able to set the backgroundFrameRate in a Flex app.
thx, for the reply!
I will experiment with the backgroundFrameRate property.
The browser issue is unfurtunate, but i expected that there isn't a solution
within the capabilities of the flashplayer.
