Does Skyfire or Puffin Web Browser support AV adapter?

Hi. I have iPod touch 4th generation. As you know touch 4g can mirror video and photos if you plug it into AV adapter. My question is: Does flash video from Skyfire, Puffin or any other flash browser from AppStore support AV adapter video streaming on touch 4g?

EDIT: I've very thoroughly elaborated on all these in a self-standing article I've just published here at MR: http://forums.macrumors.com/showthread.php?p=17001400

My original post (I only keep it for historical purposes):

I've thoroughly tested this with my A4-based iDevices (iPt4G, iPad1, iPhone 4). I've used the video at http://shahid.mbc.net/Media/video/23043 for testing (I've been using it for quite long for testing of Flash browsers - see the 06/22/2012 update HERE for my previous browser compliance test results):

SkyFire: nope
Puffin: nope
iSwifter (on iPads only): nope
Photon: yup, it works!

An example shot of my iPad1's driving an external VGA monitor while playing back the above video:



(large image: https://dl.dropbox.com/u/81986513/03...xternalVGA.jpg )

As you can see in the above shot, Photon stretches the video quite a bit, at least on my LG W2253V Full HD LCD. This is why, among other things, only the first half of the channel logo (mbc) can be seen on the external monitor in the lower right corner of the screen.

EDIT: unfortunately, on small-screen devices like the iPt4G / iPhone 4 (and all later models), Photon zooms in even more. An example screenshot:



(large-sized version: https://dl.dropbox.com/u/81986513/03...nalVGA-iph.jpg )

The video can't be scrolled or zoomed in, unlike the on-screen controls of, say, AVPlayerHD's TV output.

That is, if the video takes up too large area of the screen, it will most probably be severely cropped when using TV output, particularly on small-screen devices.
