I am developing www.moviestarplanet.com, and are experiencing
a super critical problem with flash player 10 (in internet
explorer): When using flashplayer 10 (internet explorer) our
application completely freezes once every 2-5-10 minutes for
1-10-60 seconds depending on hardware and test scenario. This
problem does not occur in flashplayer 9 versions.
Our app loads and programmatically animates figures in SWF
files. This causes a lot of objects to be created by the
flashplayer. In one scenario, where we are animating 3 figures, our
memory is increasing with 1mb per second and once every 30-40 secs
the (flex) application hangs for 60 sec. when the memory usage
drops from around 100mb to 80mb. This problem does not exist in
flash player 9. That, the exact same scenario with flash player 9
does not freeze.
This problem is very critical to our app, and a potential
showstopper for us and our business, so has anyone experienced
something similar and what can be done to work around this problem
For now we have created a cstom downgrade installer, which
prompts the user to instal flashplayer 9.0.159 if flashplayer 10 is
installed. But this is not acceptable and we are losing way to many
users on that account.
A version of moviestarplanet allowing flashplayer 10 can be
accessed at www.moviestarplanet.com/index2.html if anyone is
