Hi Dev

Due to this problem. which is still recurrent within the adobe platform due
to the use of the swf format.

I think it would be an opportunity to change the platform since similar
services such as zoom, whose cost is 50% lower in relation to the cost of


Besides the advantage in the case of zoom to work with the webrtc protocol
(developed in the ietf), which allows to be light and multiplatform,
besides working with any type of connection to the internet and the
valuable function in the case of corporate plans to create a recording
immediately of an mp4 file, which can be placed within the ICANN youtube
