Flash is a multimedia used for creating videos, games, advertisement, and any media related forms. It provides people easier access to interactive multimedia by streaming or playing videos.


Flash has started as a drawing pen program named SmartSketch developed by Jonathan Gay. It did not work efficiently at first when it was marketed for pen computers. After the failure, Microsoft Windows and Mac OS adopted the technology and succeeded in making more popular. It could be developed further since it was the time when internet and computers became popular than ever before. Its names has changed into Adobe Flash when Adobe purchased it in 2005. At this time, flash was used widely over the internet as a means of converting Youtube videos easily. However, its use has declined recently because another form of program, HTML5, has emerged as it is more easily adopted for users to play videos.
