    Custom Video Player in flash

    Hi all,
    I'm new to Symbian developing, I would like to write a video player that progressive download a video from HTTP, some sort of youTube.

    I read about Kuneri and Janus, is it possible to develop such kind of app using those framework?

    Can in Flash integrate with a library written in Symbian C++?

    Thanks in advance

    Hi Melmoth,

    Flash Lite supports progressive download of many video formats including FLV and common mobile formats like 3GP.

    By design, you shouldn't need to use C++ plugins to playback multimedia content. You can review some of the general capabilities here:

    Hi,
    thanks for replying.

    I read the general capabilities, what is not too clear to me is whether the underlying device will use hardware capabilities, so if there's a hardware h264 decoder.
    Besides I would need an additional networking layer for my custom DRM and caching.

    So I'm still interested to know if some C++ dll can be integrated.

    thanks
    bye

    Hi,

    There are standards for DRM and I encourage you to consider them first. In fact in most cases DRM isn't necessary on a mobile device. Generally you should avoid adding complexity as this ALWAYS surfaces to the user. Think of all the possible ways that a user could steal your content and you will probably find that they can't or don't have the skill to do it.

    Caching is something that we are actively looking at as a feature, point noted. Adobe do not support the addition of native DLL's for use in Flash, it's possible but breaks the platforms consistency message. As such these types of integration are licensed and are not 'Flash' by their very nature.

    KuneriLite is an example where a developer is using webservices to enable Flash to be extended, check it out.
