Supporting thread for the GNASH open source Flash 7 bounty.

FWIW I made some progress on this today - not enough to get it building, but at least in understanding the build process.

It _appears_ that Opengl 1.1 is sufficient for this - at least no errors relating to missing functions yet

Cheers,

Paul.

I look forward to using it instead of the one that was released 'unofficially'. Perhaps Innotek would also have a version of it?

Perhaps as an alternative to GNASH there also is FAD (Open Source Flash Animation Decode library), see http://fad.sourceforge.net/. As that is based on the SDL and cairo graphics libraries that we already have for OS/2 this might be a lot easier to port.

"libFAD is an open source Flash Animation Decode library, which was implement in C language from scratch. our goal is to create a powerful and high-performance Flash Animation Decode library for embedded device."

Can one port it if it was intended for embedded devices? It would be easier since support - cairo and sdl - support for OS/2-eCS is already there (IIRC).

Shouldn't be that hard to build - but currently there's no mozilla/firefox plugin - only a standalone player....

Well even that could be put to use to at least some extent. Mediaplayerconnectivity allows flash to be redirected to a standalone player.

At least two issues exist in porting this...

1) it uses mmap which doesn't exist in libc
2) it uses OSS for audio for which an os/2 port doesn't exist.

Perhaps someone could suggest this to Innotek? They did the Flash for OS/2 (ver 5). Even if it means a fee (within reason of course), it could be worth it to get a more current flash player for eCS.

As soon as something gets working I look forward to beta testing it. Although, with flash 9 out, I hope this doesn't get left behind.

There seems to more and more sites that use the newer Flash that not even the unathorized flash for OS/2 can handle. We OS/2-eCS users need a newer flash or something that can run flash.

GNASH can run quite a bit of Flash 8 and Flash 9 is planned, the first thing we would need would be a working build of it. Since the original message was posted Cario has been supported as a renderer and OpenGL has actually been dropped as it's primary target in favor of a system which will work on video systems which only present a framebuffer (embeded devices) I also believe there is a somewhat functional firefox plugin for it. Even if it didn't run 100% of the content immediately it would leave us a viable long term solution.

Gnash can be built with Cairo instead of the gl mode///it's inthe gnash docs.

Gnash is a project of the FSF it's probably the bests bet to be continued and maintained

FWIW it isn;t too bad i just finished building gnash-cairo for another platform

Where did you read that? I just glanced at the Gnash manual at "Code dependencies" and it says:

GtkGlExt

GtkGlExt is an optional package used instead of SDL. Gtk enables better integration with Firefox, as well as better event handling and higher level GUI constructs like menus and dialog boxes.
...
Cairo

Cairo is a dependency of GtkGlExt, and is used for 2D rendering.



So I'd only see two possibilities how to get Gnash built under OS/2:
At first, using the AntiGrain 2d graphics library (http://www.antigrain.com/) instead of OpenGl which is not yet ported to OS/2 (at least I couldn't find it at Hobbes) but which shouldn't be that hard according to the project's homepage. This could ensure a decent rendering performance - if the OS/2 frontend would be based on DIVE and not the GPI of course . I have no idea if it would be possible to compile a Mozilla/Firefox plugin with a AGG-based Gnash.
Secondly, using our non-accelerated and outdated (but it was said that this doesn't matter in this case) OpenGl/Mesa implementations which would result in relatively low rendering performance and high CPU load - even if it's only 2d graphics but which would allow us to build a Mozilla/Firefox plugin, too. However regarding the power/speed of current desktop/notebook PCs it could be worth a try.

I'll try find some time over the next week or so and take a look at gnash - it's been a while....

FWIW - made some progress on the Boost libraries today - these are the last missing dependency I have for gnash. They're not building cleanly yet - but as least I have Boost Jam (the 'make' program used by Boost libs) working enough that it is trying to compile!

I'll try post updates on progress to this thread....

Thanks for the news. It gives hope for those wanting an updated flash.

OK - pretty sure I have enough of the Boost libs built now, trying tor esolve some c++ issues between Gnash and our GCC port.

PS I hate C++

OK I now get a gnash.exe - get a SIGABRT on startup - but I think I've corrected that - just waiting on a rebuild and some sleep before I test it
