There have been increasing queries lately as to how Toufee flash movies can be delivered over mobile devices, given the increasing use of mobile as a content delivery platform thanks to the smartphone wave. Flash found its adoption slower on the mobile platform than on the Internet, arguably so. Adobe Flex, which Toufee is developed on, is yet to get full-stream support on the mobile platform. This presents quite a challenge to make Toufee flash movies work on mobile devices just like they would in traditional Internet environment on PCs. Gladly, there is a workaround that you could use for now. Since Toufee supports converting flash movies to video files, the answer is to use YouTube as a content delivery medium for your flash movies. YouTube provides an Andriod application that lets you watch the videos. So get the ball rolling and start updating your YouTube channel with your flash movies. A great fit would be the delivery of video-series such as educational tutorials, marketing promo series, etc. So the next time someone asks you how to check your flash movie on their mobile, send them to your YouTube channel!
