Flash codecs

I'm experimenting with using crossbridge (formerly FlasCC) to build the codec libraries to ActionScript bytecode, for a possible Ogg-playing Flash fallback for older browsers. So far I can build all the libraries but am having trouble linking them. Brion 12:58, 22 February 2014 (PST)

Now working in the main build. --Brion 14:44, 18 March 2014 (PDT)

I removed those a while ago; it worked but had some problems:

  • streaming/seeking would have required server-side support (HTTP Range header is blacklisted in requests made by Flash!)
  • CrossBridge compiler hella slow, no working Linux build available
  • CrossBridge compiler is not being actively maintained, so continues to bitrot
  • share of IE 9 and below keeps shrinking, so diminishing returns trying to maintain it

If someone's interested it could be picked up again though; all the old code's in ogv.js's git history. --Brion (talk) 07:38, 13 August 2015 (PDT)
