Beta Macromedia Flash player for Smartphone

Recommended Posts

Heh. Such AWESOME AND TECHNOLOGICALLY ADVANCED VIDEOS.

Man... Their not that awesome....

My phone plays any flash I put on there. Took me a while to modify the accelerator table to my liking though. It does lag up when there's too much animation, but only at the beginning, and in the end it starts working.

Awesome.

ResHacker finds the following information when pointed at this EXE:

  VALUE "CompanyName", "Macromedia, Inc."

  VALUE "FileDescription", "Macromedia Flash Player 6.0  r79"

  VALUE "FileVersion", "6,0,79,0"

  VALUE "InternalName", "Macromedia Flash Player 6.0"

  VALUE "LegalCopyright", "Copyright © 1996-2003 Macromedia, Inc."

  VALUE "LegalTrademarks", "Macromedia Flash Player"

  VALUE "OriginalFilename", "SAFlashPlayer.exe"

  VALUE "ProductName", "Shockwave Flash"

  VALUE "ProductVersion", "6,0,79,0"

It also finds a bunch of menus and popup dialog boxes whcih look very strange for a Smartphone app - there are four top-level menus, for instance.

On that basis I tried running it on my PocketPC, and lo-and-behold all the menus and so on appear. 

So what I think we have here is probably the bog-standard standalone PocketPC Flash player.  But since it's confirmed working on Smartphones, albeit with no resize, no exit, and so on, I think bu_kandar83 has stumbled on something useful.

Now, I wonder if we/I/someone could write a Smartphone app to send events to this thing (like a QUIT or RESIZE event) to make up for the menus and buttons that aren't available.  I'm sure such a thing should be possible...

yeah that will be great. i cant play any animation that has a start button because i can't navigate throught the ani menu. but its a good piece of soft i hope someone can remodify it for the smartphone i try it on my i930 Nextel

I would like to use the joystick in a C500 smartphone with this application.

Is it possible with MenuHack and how ?

Thanks

Well this version somehow supports landscape mode....

it is still buggy...i am hoping to fix them soon!

I know its been months since you've probably thought about this program but I wanted to say thanks. It works great. I have only one suggestion. If you ever get around to working on it again maybe you could add the ability to change from regular to landscape mode. Other than that though it is awesome.

Have you guys tried this?

Flash on WM

Well, after some tweaking, I've done it!

It works and plays great.

I thank gpcarreon for his heads up. If anyone want the files, I think I can post them (it's freeware).

Well, I tried it. Hehehe. Though the sample SWF file I loaded did not play well on the phone.

I think we should just go for extracting the files for own use rather than posting the files at the forum. It is easy to go about extracting the required files. I have posted a walkthrough for that at the blog.

OK, I've had a closer look at this one, with some success. I've managed to build an app which you run *before* you start the flash player; when you then start the flash player, it flips it into show-all mode so you can see the whole file, which is a big improvement.

Enjoy...

Alright, so when are we gonna get an experienced programmer in here to make something truly usefull out of this. I can almost smell the day when I can play full flash games on my Voq straight from pocket internet explorer on miniclip.com. Any takers?

So, is it possible to at least use one of these programs for sites like Youtube? If so, which one is best and what other files will I need?

I'm using a Motorola Q.
