Going onto the Adobe Flash Player site, I cannot see the Flash images designed to test whether Flash is installed, but it will not let me install Flash – I get the error message that Windows 8 already has Flash enabled when I try to do so. Any help gratefully received.

In theory, end users ought to acquire no trouble in playing Flash on Windows RT/Windows 8-powered Surface subsequently after IE 10 has added accessibility to Adobe Flash. But, this is certainly not the case here. In fact, The software giant has turned taking advantage of flash video files together with Windows-powered Surface Tablet freely a tough endeavor. On the one hand, Surface RT/Pro, Surface 2, Surface Pro 2 are actually reluctant to put all-aspect support to the weak Flash Player; the other point is, Microsoft simply allows end users to get pleasure from Flash movies on creditworthy websites using Surface Tablet.

As early as 2007, Microsoft company had decided to focus on an app that is able to function just as the same as Adobe Flash Player titled Silverlight. Created as an Adobe Flash Player alternative, Silverlight allows buyers to enjoy virtually all flash video files on Surface. Moreover, seeing as a Microsoft program, Silverlight may not simply entirely accessible for Surface but additionally pleasantly coordinate with Surface RT/Pro, Surface 2, Surface Pro 2. Yet, this option to play Flash movie on Surface Tablets will not work faultlessly.

In fact, seeing as an immature product, you can find too many faults in Silverlight. Furthermore, the software giant’s option to give up Silverlight in the new web browser has meant that the app will not do better in aiding end users to observe Flash together with Surface than Adobe Flash can. On those grounds, different tactics to get pleasure from Flash file with Surface tend to be wanted.

4 Thoughts

Amazon’s Jeff Bezos announced the new fall 2013 line-up of new Kindle Fires, now called the Kindle Fire HDX. The new HDX, like the previous models, will come in both 7- and 8.9-inch sizes and HD displays with resolutions of 1920 x 1200 (323ppi) and 2560 x 1600 (339ppi) respectively. Aside from the size differences, both models will be powered by the ultra-powerful Snapdragon 800 Quad-Core processor, clocked at 2.2 GHz. Both will be available in 16GB, 32GB and 64GB storage options, as well as either WiFi-only or LTE equipped (through AT&T and Verizon). There is one small cosmetic/functional difference, the 7-inch HDX doesn’t feature a rear camera, while the 8.9-inch model features an 8-megapixel camera. Both feature a front facing camera for video chat, but don’t look to take pictures while you’re out and about with the smaller of the two.

Tips: If you like, you can click “Settings” to change the video encoder, resolution, frame rate, etc. as you wish.

For watching videos on Kindle Fire HDX 7/8.9, 720p with 1500~2000kbps is just all right.

PS. The process is based on Mac screenshots, the way encoding tivo shows to Kindle Fire HDX 7/8.9 on Windows is almost the same.
