Archived Talk:How to package Flash content in a Widget
Featured article, July 27th 2008 (week 31)
I have tried using RDA but still not able to run that downloaded application say MyFlashWidget. May I know why?
None of the methods seem to produce intended flashlite behavior similar to the stand-alone flash-lite player. Instead with these methods I see the following errors:
Bg info: device (tried on both n95 and n5230 same exact behavior experienced on both)
1) embed flash - flash app does not hold focus, there is a 1pixel neon blue border that looks to be the HTML container 2) exact same as above 3) works in pc browser, produces white blank screen on devices
One may ask: if the widget is pure flash why not run it from the player instead of nesting it in the wap browser? If it is a security issue then why is browsing to the file manager or gallery any different? I don't see warnings there.
Would love to see this flash widget implementation working properly. It's almost there! It really is a step forward!
The ambiquity perpetrated above requires rejoindering: Please elaborate ;o)
The article describes alternative methods to package flash content in to a widget. Although there are many third party applications to help you with this, it is limited to mainly windows machines. The article provides three alternatives to package a flash content within a widget.
1) Embedded Flash 2) Directly Playing Flash 3) Meta-refresh method
An example widget is also provided to embed the flash content within. Note: To get the example working you need to rename the zip file properly as mentioned in the article.
