[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. ...continue reading
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. -- Chris Living in Paradise!!
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..... -- Explore Xubuntu. Like It? Install It. [Love It]!
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.
