=============================================================================/

Swfplayer is a standalone Shockwave player for Amiga based on libflash for
Linux by Olivier Debon (odebon()club-internet.fr).

At the beginning, this project was just a quick rewrite of Paul Hill's version
(paul()lagernet.clara.co.uk) to update it to the latest libflash available. No
bug fix was done in this first time, BUT with time, demand and feedback from
you dear users, SWFPlayer *slowly* evolved to this version.
Some time ago, at the beginning of this year Mike Steed released his own player
based upon Olivier's libflash, I'm happy to announce we are in contact and we
found an agreement : for now we will still develop our own players BUT about
libflash we will collaborate and share as far as possible.

Don't bother Olivier nor Paul with this version, if you have a bug report, a
suggestion or what ever else write to alexandre()balaban(.)name.

** Please, in order to let me filter my mail and eliminate spam emails, include
** 'swfplayer' in the subject. Generaly I respond as soon as possible in less
** than a week, but if after 2 weeks you still have no news from me, write me
** again : it's possible your mail gone to trash by mistake :-(

I have included original readmes into the archive (both paul's and libflash's).

    - A1200 BPPC 603e+ (68040()25 & PPC 603()160), 128MB Fast, OS3.9, BVPPC and 
     CGFX3 (me),     - A1 XE (G4()800), 512MB Ram, 0S4pre3, Radeon 9200SE 128MB,
Picasso96 (me),     - A1200 BPPC 603e+ (68040()25 & PPC 603()240), 96MB Fast,
OS3.9, Voodoo 3 and       CGFX4 (Jürgen Sperling),     - A1200 Blizzard 1230 IV
(68030/68882()50), 32MB Fast, OS3.9 (Raul Silva),     - A1200 A1230

BPPC 603e (68040()40 & PPC 603()225), 128MB Fast, OS3.9, BVPPC and       CGFX4
(Dari®)     - A1200 1230 IV()50, 16MB Fast, OS3.9 (Ulrich Scholz)     - A1200
Apollo1260()64, 64MB Fast, OS3.9BB2, MagellanII, MCP (DARK)     - Amithlon
(Markus Lunk)

Features :
    - supports swf files upto Flash 4 (and *some* Flash 5, 6 and 7),
    - loop play option (on by default),
    - zoom in/out command,
    - pause command,
    - can open referenced URL (with OpenURL.library),
    - can play compressed movies,
    - can play embeded movies (in .exe for example),
    - *NEW* correct detection of the graphic system (without the NOCGX switch),
    - *NEW* primary sound support added (only) via AHI,
    - *NEW* Drag'N'Drop window to launch Flash movie via WB,

Known Bugs or problems :
    - if OpenURL is present, SWFPlayer may send your browser incomplete URLs : 
      as SWFPlayer is an external player, it could not in any way know the base
      URL of the swf file, so swf files referencing other swf files without 
      complete URL won't be loaded. :-( It's not a bug of SWFPlayer but a 
      technical limit.
    - if OpenURL is present, strange URL can be sent to your browser (things 
      like 'FSCommand:<xxx>') : this is a command flash movies can send when
      embeded into a browser (ie. when you have a flash plugin, which is not
      the case when you're using SWFPlayer) in order to pass some parameters.
      This is not really a bug of my program, as it's libflash recognizing 
      this command and passing it back to my openurl function... I'll try to
      solve this inconvenience in a future version.
    - SWFPlayer is reported to crash on 68040LC : I think it's just a
compilation       option, but did not manage to identify it :-( Report if it
works now     - Some sort of problem on 8bit screens (I'm currently working on
that)

To Do :
    - filter out strange URLs (in progress),
    - improve audio support (in progress),
    - add better Flash support,
    - ...
