Has anyone created a native Flash player plugin for REALbasic?
I wanted. But Flash doesn't licence the SDK to everyone.
They make contracts starting at 50000 Units...
So if we find enough Realbasic Users who would pay for licences we can
do something. And than we can ask about price ;-)
Yes, obviously this is something REAL could afford to do.
Submitted as a feature request w/realbugs.
FYI, I looked at the SDK licensing info on their website, and
unfortunately they don't make any mention that the SDK has source
code for Mac -- only Win32 and Linux. This is odd, because obviously
there is mac code out there...
I'm also checking with some quicktime developers as to whether / when
QT will support flash 5. I'll post updates as I get them, but your
point about flash 6 is valid.
(p.s. I'm not subscribed to the plugin list, if anyone wants to cc:
this to that list I'd be happy.).
