Adobe Flash Player -Code names

Some of the interesting code names for Adobe Flash Player

MovieStar---->it includes H.264 standard video support – the same standard deployed in Blu-Ray and HD-DVD high definition video players. In other words, the quality of video has been substantially improved from the previous version of Flash Player 9. Also added to the mix is High Efficiency AAC (HE-AAC) audio support and “hardware accelerated, multi-core enhanced full screen video playback”.

FrogStar ----->That new feature is the ability for the Flash Player to cache the Flex framework on the local machine, meaning the file size of a Flex based SWF will be dramatically smaller.
