Software : : Flash Video Support in Development OWB for MorphOS
Posted By: Velcro_SP. on 2009/7/7 21:41:42
Another barrier is falling in extending the capabilities of Amiga-like systems. Fab Coeurjoly added Flash video support to his already great port of OWB browser for MorphOS. A screenshot:

He used "swfdec" to implement the feature but mentioned that it is very slow currently.

    Holy cow! Gimme gimme!

    Why is it that every development from Fabien immediately generates these kind of comments?

    Video is a fairly recent addition to flash, I think this plugin handles more than just video...

    Oh and by the way.

    Fab that is great even if it's limited to watch flash movies on youtube and other sites that would be enough for me.
    Thanks man!!!!

    swfdec handles way more than just youtube & co videos. For instance, most commercial ads work just fine (we really needed that :)).
    On the other hand, on the video side, RTMP protocol isn't handled yet, which is what some flash players stream from. And there are also some video players that won't work, like wattv, dailymotion and a couple others.

    And like it was said, swfdec is suboptimally designed for speed, which is a bit problematic when video is involved.

    So, i repeat. There's nothing really revolutionary or great with this flash plugin. It's mostly a test of the plugin system for me, and an evaluation of swfdec speed and compatibility for you when it's released. :)

    But it's still cool to be able to say you can watch embedded youtube flash stuff (even though getvideo+mplayer is way more efficient :)).

    "even though getvideo+mplayer is way more efficient :))" - indeed! i hope we can turn the flash plugin off for youtube and others (per site rule:)

    @FAB

    is RTMP protocol something you can implement or do you have to wait for swflashdec to support it?

    I think RTMP is not very easy to implement. But I think I heard something about it getting support in mplayer, so hopefully that will solve it sooner or later (I don't think RTMP support is crucial at the moment, but it's probably getting more important).

    @Fab,

    Is there a way we can donate a few bucks for you to buy yourself a couple of drinks on me, for all of your hard work on such a fine MorphOS port of the OWB browser?
