Flash Client [Dec. 4th, 2001|11:45 pm]
LiveJournal Client Discussions

I have recently built a FLASH program of LiveJournal. It works really well, and I have yet to find any bugs in it, except when you try to move REALLY fast, in which case the counter gets ahead of the speed to load. As soon as I can find someplace to put it (perhaps here?) anyone can use it, as long as they have a paid account, because it uses the CGI scripts.

I made this because in the "embedding" section I saw something along the lines of "If you can do this with flash, let us know! We'd like to see it." Well, I took that as a personal challenge, and it's done! Someone tell me where I can stash it (Free webservers don't work because they block CGI commands, and I've yet to find a server it works on. There could be something wrong with it. Right now it works on a local computer, but not on a webpage. If anyone out there knows FLASH and would like the source code, send me an email (bhubbard@gunnrobotics.org) and I'm more than happy to send them all I've got. It's Flash 5, but its not terribly complex scripting. If I could get it working, I'd be thrilled. This is the first FLASH I've done for anything but personal stuff and a few quick applets for friends, and I'm eager to get it working and available to people who want it. The whole thing (HTML, FLASH, and source) isn't more than 80k. If anyone out there knows flash and can give me a hand, its somewhat perplexing. It SHOULD work, but it doesn't seem to work on a server. Maybe there's something I don't know about FLASH? Who knows.

If people like it I'll work on some more engaging interfaces, right now it's just about all function, zero form. To download it, save these files:

SWF (Online Compiled File)
FLA(FLASH 5 Source File)

Ok, so they're stashed on a friend's server. Just hold SHIFT and download the three files.

i was asked elsewhere to point this out to you, to make sure you were aware that this vulnerability was out there for your new client you are/were creating.

That is irrelevent. Basically it runs down to you have to run a flash PROJECTOR for that to do any damage. And if a person is silly enough to download an unknown exe and run it, they deserve what they get.

*chuckles* i didn't think it would actually be relevent myself. it was merely brought up in conversation elsewhere that a flash virus was loose and that someone was trying to make a flash client. figured it'd be worth the 3 seconds to mention it. :) i agree though, if you're dumb enough to download something you don't find safe, bfd.

File not found on all three. I'd love to take a look at these being a fellow flash guru.

New Local!

Here's a new place I've stashed the files for the time being.

HTML flie:
Direct Flash SWF:
FLA (source code):

Like i said, its really simplistic, nothing more than a proof of concept, but it can indeed be done!

New Location

Sorry, got taken down a while ago...silly me. I'll re-post them tonight on my school's server. I'll post later with location.
