Macromedia to Open Flash Player Source

Thursday January 6th, 2000

Tekhir writes, "Well, Macromedia is open sourcing their Flash player and file format [according to this BeNews story]. It would be interesting to see if this could/should be intergrated into Mozilla. Can you imagine if people started making the UI out of Flash 4. Or better yet borrowing its alpha transparency layer. There are a lot of cool effects that one can do with Flash."

Should Flash be integrated into Mozilla? Or should their tasty, optimized vector-drawing code be cannibalized for the inevitable SVG implementation?

I'd swear that someone within Netscape got this working a few months back, and had a usable all-PNG browser (pretty sure it was posted to MozillaZine). I think there may have been a few problems with the PNG rendering code then, but hopefully things are moving on -- it would be a good endorsement of PNG if this happened (burn the GIFs, burn the GIFs :).
