    Do you have a link or pointer or any other info regard­ing using the plu­gin with Chromium? Installing the browser-plugin-lightspark pack­age had no effect. Should it just work or do I need to dig into con­fig files somewhere?

    The code is writ­ten is stan­dard C++ and is com­pletely portable besides some spe­cial­ized high per­for­mance code paths writ­ten in assem­bly that needs port­ing. Apart that some fixes are needed as there are endi­an­ness assump­tions in the pars­ing code that are wrong on a Big Endian architecture

    Type about:plugins in the address bar and you’ll see the avail­able plu­g­ins. Lightspark should be there. Be sure to enable only one plu­gin to han­dle swf content

    Yes, I assumed that nobody would be bril­liant enough to attempt to port the assem­bly bits. Outstanding.

    OK, I only get the “Default Plu­gin” so I guess it has to do with the fact I’m using Chromium 7.0.523.0 (59195). There are other odd­i­ties with this ver­sion such as Ctrl-B not work­ing. I guess I’ll behave and go back to using a “nor­mal” version.
