It seems that a bug for Adobe Flash 10.1 Mobile on Android Froyo 2.2 is that the plugin will initiate and play audio despite the fact that the device is in silent mode. Even if you’ve silenced your device, when you’re watching video in the browser, audio will still chime through, which could be a bad thing if you need the device to stay muted. According to one user’s email to the forums at Android Guys,
We rely on silent mode on all our devices to help the geeklet to stay asleep while allowing his mom and dad to continue to use their phones and computers. Last night the self-playing Flash video on the Iron Chef America website woke the little guy up regardless that my N1 was on silent. Today I’ve tested the phone on a few other noisy Flash sites and they all have played audio, regardless of the phone’s silent mode. I’m gonna have to keep earphones plugged into the device while the baby’s asleep, at least until Adobe can correct this obvious oversight
Anyone with a Google Nexus One with Froyo loaded want to test this out and let us know?
