a) I tried to view a SWF in a HTML file using WebView. I see a message asking to get Flash Player. Somehow, the emulator is not able to find Flash Player it is installed in the emulator.
BTW I am using Android SDK 2.3
b) I create a mobile app using Flex 4.5.1 and installed the apk on android. The app has one view that shows SWF in a local HTM file using StageWebView. I was able to test the app using Flex's emulator.
But in the android emulator, when I get to the view that shows the local HTML file - it asks for FlashPlayer to be installed.
It seems Flash player does not work Android Emulator. We can test it only on actual devices
