Windows 7: Still think Flash will die?

Still think Flash will die?

Ok. I need to be clarified in some things that have popped up since some time. This is, if Flash will come to an end? Certainly, DHTML have evolved to an incredible state, that you donīt need to know actionscript or what the hell is that, to see real time motion in a web page since javascript can do it for you.

Now, since people like to watch videos on the net and HD is gathering the whole market, .swf - .flv files, lack the power to accelerate GPU hardware meaning that videos on almost all computers will lag.

Firefox, with its 3.5 introduced the power to reproduce h.264 videos and display HD content on the web without the need of the player.

People with this, did got convinced that Flash would be obsolete and it will be thrown to darkness. BUT, Adobe recently started negotiating with the manufacturers of commercial Video Cards, getting to an agreement to bring GPU acceleration through a Web browser to the .swf and .flv files, meaning that HD videos streaming sites like Youtube, which recently introduced 1080p playback, will be optimal when it comes to stream HD videos, which really sucked because of the lack of the GPU acceleration.

So now that .flv videos does support GPU acceleration through a web browser, think that a well elaborated scripting language as actionscript and everything related to it (.swf and .flv) will die? I want to know what you guys think about this.

I don't think Flash will die...I just think that Adobe really needs to send out an x64 version of Flash for Windows. It has been long overdue
