Adobe Flash (formerly called “Macromedia Flash”) is a multimedia and software platform used for authoring ofvector graphics, animation, games and rich Internet applications (RIAs) that can be viewed, played and executed inAdobe Flash Player. Flash is frequently used to add streamed video or audio players, advertisement and interactivemultimedia content to web pages, although usage of Flash on websites is declining.

Flash manipulates vector and raster graphics to provide animation of text, drawings, and still images. It allows bidirectional streaming of audio and video, and it can capture user input via mouse, keyboard, microphone and camera. Flash applications and animations can be programmed using the object-oriented language calledActionScript. Adobe Flash Professional is the most popular and user-friendly authoring tool for creating the Flash content, which also allows automation via the JavaScript Flash language (JSFL).

Adobe Flash Player makes the Flash content accessible on various computer systems and devices and is available free of charge for common web browsers (as a plug-in) under a few of the major operating systems, some smartphones and tablets, and a few otherelectronic devices using Flash Lite.
