You can specify a maximum allowable level of quality for Adobe Flash content that overrides Web page settings. If Adobe Flash quality for a Web page is higher than the maximum level allowed, quality is reduced to the specified maximum. Lower quality results in more bandwidth savings.
To make use of Adobe Flash bandwidth-reduction settings, Adobe Flash must not be running in full screen mode.
Table 1 shows the available Adobe Flash render-quality settings.
|Do not control||Quality is determined by Web page settings.|
|Low||This setting results in the most bandwidth savings.|
|Medium||This setting results in moderate bandwidth savings.|
|High||This setting results in the least bandwidth savings.|
If no maximum level of quality is specified, the system defaults to a value of Low.
Adobe Flash uses timer services to update what is shown on the screen at a given time. A typical Adobe Flash timer interval value is between 4 and 50 milliseconds. By throttling, or prolonging, the interval, you can reduce the frame rate and thereby reduce bandwidth.
Table 2 shows the available Adobe Flash throttling settings.
|Disabled||No throttling is performed. The timer interval is not modified.|
|Conservative||Timer interval is 100 milliseconds. This setting results in the lowest number of dropped frames.|
|Moderate||Timer interval is 500 milliseconds.|
|Aggressive||Timer interval is 2500 milliseconds. This setting results in the highest number of dropped frames.|
Audio speed remains constant regardless of which throttling setting you select.
