Dear Everyone!
I want to run flash file .swf in my widget. At a moment I am using gnash for it.
But It is not working good.
There is a problem of resizing object as well as it cannot render object completely.

So any other way is available to run flash .swf files in widget.

Try using some freware flashPlayer(adobe or shockwave) as activeX - works good for me.

Under X11, you could use XEmbed and QX11EmbedContainer to embed the proprietary flash player in a window.

WebKit might soon be a good choice too. Provided that it can run netscape (or some other) plugins...

I am using WebKit in my application but it is not opening flash files, however it opens html files. How to open flash files using webkit?

I don't feel qualified to answer the question. If WebKit doesn't support netscape (or other) plugins, then it won't play flash movies. Period. Hence the "provided" part in my previous post.

QAxWidget *flash("ShockWave Flash Object");
flash->dynamicCall("Movie(const QString&)", filename);

Qt Assistant! :D

It is very good documentation. Very good. When you want to know how to use a class, it should be the first place you look. It tells you all about QX11Embed classes.

But it doesn't tell you how to get a window id of a particular window from a 3rd party app ;)

This is the code which embeds webkit inside a widget. Only problem is plugins not loaded. there are qwebobjectplugin.cpp and qobjectpluginconnector.cpp files in API of webkit. But I don't know how to use these two files and classes inside it to enable plugin.


#include <qwebpage.h>
#include <qwebframe.h>
#include <qwebsettings.h>
.
.
.
QWebSettings settings = QWebSettings::global();
settings.setAttribute(QWebSettings::PluginsEnabled );
QWebSettings::setGlobal(settings);
QUrl url("http://www.yahoo.com");
page= new QWebPage(this);
page->open(url);
show();

Kindly help if there is a way to include plugin. I can provide the code for qwebobjectplugin.cpp and qobjectpluginconnector.cpp .

The problem is not embedding WebKit into the app, but embedding a 3rd party player into WebKit or directly in your app. If you use native X calls to fetch the winId, it shouldn't be a problem. But you have to dig into Xlib to see how to get the id of a particular window which I doubt will be very simple.

So, there is no class in Qt (ver. 4.3.2) that can play flash animation on qwidget?

What about using QT4.4 and its integrated Webkit? I've noticed that even the demo browser application provided with it is unable to load flash and other videos.

So, is it possible to integrate a flash plugin inside QT Webkit? How?

I have done it; but I would have to fix some issue of sound control in multiple frames.
It is also possible with gnash; but It does not provide the full resizing feature against different Aspect ratio.

When thing I didn't understand though: have you integrated the plugin using two different (and separate) methods (1 - through webkit; 2 - through gnash)

Or, on the contrary, you integrated the plugin using, at the same time, Webkit + Gnash?

Dear beto!
Both the gnash & webkit; I have done seperately. But Some issue remain to fix. And I am thinking the best way to solve this; using webkit.

Ashukla, thanks for your kind answers.

I'm interested mainly in the Webkit integration: I have a browser-like app built with the latest QT 4.4 snapshot, using the QT Webkit API. It works fine, apart from the video plugins.

I'm stuck on that, because I didn't find a way to properly integrate a video plugin inside the QT/Webkit modules. How did you make it? Using the classes inside qwebobjectplugin.cpp and qobjectpluginconnector.cpp? I've seen these classes, but I don't know how to use them.:confused:

Or maybe have you used the QAxWidget? This is part of the ActiveQT framework, and not included in the Free/Non-Commercial QT editions, right?

Dear Beto!
I am not using ActiveQt Framework because it is not possible in Linux/Unix.
The simplest way is; You can call any swf file in web browser using <embed> of Java Script.
first you create a temporary html file for particular .swf object and then play it. Another way is also possible; but I am bounded with company rules.
hoping its help!
