Submission + - Open source project to translate SWF to html5 (github.com) 1

An anonymous reader writes: Mozilla currently has an experimental project on github called shumway to try to interpret SWF (aka Flash files) using browser-standard technologies like html5 and javascript. All I can say is please and thank you!

Shumway is an HTML5 technology experiment that explores building a faithful and efficient renderer for the SWF file format without native code assistance. Shumway is community-driven and supported by Mozilla. Our goal is to create a general-purpose, web standards-based platform for parsing and rendering SWFs. Integration with Firefox is a possibility if the experiment proves successful.

Open source project to translate SWF to html5

  • This would be a huge. We need more and more companies to challenge the capabilities of flash with html5 and JavaScript.

Never let someone who says it cannot be done interrupt the person who is doing it.
