How does the hierarchy work if you have shumway, gnash and lightspark installed? gnash and lightspark hand-off to each other OK. Does installing whumway mean they'll never get a look-in?
It works marginally better on alertme.com than gnash+lightspark does (a few icons and one map are visible rather than nothing). It's the same level of broken on youtube (approx half the stuff works via HTML5 - flash stuff doesn't). It doesn't play BBC iplayer, whilst gnash youtube have recently (at last!) got this working. It seems to be easy to disable it and try with the external players so I guess that'll do. Neither shumway nor lightspark work on vimeo (lightspark gets a bit further).
All these perfectly accessible files wrapped in a tiny bit of flash that prevent me using them has been effing irritating for years. If shumway solves that better than the other efforts then that'll be great.
One does wonder if all this effort applied to one project instead of 4 would have given us better free players sooner, but I guess that's not the way the world works.
