[Gnash-dev] fallback player for flv files in unsupported swfs

Hi !

i am looking for some pointers on how to implement a fallback mode for swf files that contain unsupported features.

the background is that i really don't care for flash but require it to play online videos(and possibly save them to disk). however, quite a few swf players use unimplemented features and are therefore unusable with the OS flash implementations.

i would like to implement an exit point in the parser that, in case unimplemented features are detected, scans the file/the parameters supplied to the object for flvs(and possibly other media files) in order to hand them off to a simple gstreamer based player(which could be lifted from either the html5 video/audio tag implementation in gecko or webkit or the totem mozilla plugin)

has this idea been investigated before ?

kind regards
