[Mozilla Research] Shumway - Open SWF (flash) Runtime

The Shumway Open SWF Runtime Project
Pushing the Boundaries of the Open Web
November 12, 2012 - Mozilla Research

quote:
Shumway is an experimental web-native runtime implementation of the SWF file format. It is developed as a free and open source project sponsored by Mozilla Research. The project has two main goals:

1. Advance the open web platform to securely process rich media formats that were previously only available in closed and proprietary implementations.
2. Offer a runtime processor for SWF and other rich media formats on platforms for which runtime implementations are not available.

Project Shumway - GitHub.

You can download a Firefox beta build and install the test extension (see project page) to preview SWF(flash) content on the web using Shumway.

Been using it a few day now, works well but not on all sites. I also have Flash installed and they both work well together. If Shumway can't handle it, it gets out of the way and lets flash do it. I will be nice when Flash is not longer needed.

Until somebody finds a bug in Shumway and that gets exploited...

It seems the main reason people often use alternates is because they think it's "safer" than than the real versions.

I tried installing Shumway in my Firefox 17.0.1 in both Linux & Win 7. In both cases, go to say Youtube & no videos would show. Remove Shumway, videos work. Didn't matter if they were flash or html5. Hmmm.....

chachazz (and/or others),

Is there some secret sauce in Fx BETA builds that enables greater Shumway functionality over that in Fx 18 & 19?

I ask because of wording on Shumway page suggesting we use Fx BETA and because my quick sampling of content around the web gave a 100% fail rate. The one-click = roll-to-Adobe is nicely implemented though.

Thanks for any tips.
