HI Rob

I do have a pressing need to get iPlayer working, so access to your branch would be advantageous.  I understand that there will be a steep learning curve.  I will be be upfront about the time I have available though, family commitments and work will mean that I only have an hour or so each evening, but it would be great to get a better understanding of gnash.

If there are any design documents you can point me at, or pointers to your branch, that would be great..

I currently have a pet project to get the BBC's iPlayer working with gnash.
I am using WebKit to display the BigScreen interface, with the gnash plugin
supplying the flash support.

I have a few questions for the list on how best to progress with the work,
seeing as I have a bit of time available to try and get this working.

 It'll be more than a little bit of time... The BBC iPlayer requires RTMP support. I have RTMP support in an experimental branch, but it's not going to be in this next release due to not bring quite ready for prime time...

 I'll gladly work with anyone who would like to take on this task from my branch and beat it into shape. Unfortunately the few people that have considered plugging into this effort realized there is a steep learning curve with both RTMP and Gnash. If you're willing to put weeks or longer into this, let me know, I'd love to hand this off to somebody while I continue hacking on Cygnal. (the server side of RTMP)
