Flash vs Silverlight : What Suits Your Needs Best ?

October 21, 2009 Leave a comment

With the release of Silverlight a debate started among designers and developers regarding choosing between Flash and Silverlight. As I understands microsoft is faces difficulties in capturing the market due to maturity of Flash.

For developers and designers it’s important to think on technical features provided by Flash and Silverlight, to choose the technology that best suits your needs.

There are some important points described as below regarding the features comparison between Flash and Silverlight.


Flash use frame-based animation model. Silverlight is based on the WPF animation model which is time-based instead of frame-based.

File Size

Flash uses a compressed format, and text and images are embedded in movie, so flash file size is relatively small.

Silverlight uses XAML for its description language and it is non-compressed, so size of Silverlight component is usually larger.

Sound Precessing

ActionScript offers a set of sound classes that can be used to generate and control sound in a movie. While Silverlight dosen’t have the low-level audio APIs. It dosen’t support playback of WAV file because .NET has very little audio playback support.

Webcam Support

Flash has webcam andmicrophone support for live video and audio transmission. While Silverlight dosen’t support webcam or microphone.

Friends, there are some others technical differences between the two technologies. As per me Adobe provides a nice features for attractive an effect applications development.
