F-IN-BOX is a window control that enhances Macromedia / Adobe Flash Player ActiveX features.
It does not use its own engine to display movies, but instead provides a wrapper around official swflash.ocx/flash.ocx code. It is thus possible to avoid certain Macromedia / Adobe Flash Player ActiveX limitations.
Using F-IN-BOX, you can load any Flash movie or flash video directly from memory. No temporary files! Load any movie on-the-fly from any source. For example, you can put one or more Flash movies in the resource section of your application and then load it from the .EXE! Feel the portability and power of F-IN-BOX! By default, the control will use the swflash.ocx/flash.ocx file which is already installed on the system. The control can alternatively use any swflash.ocx/flash.ocx file you provide using any source. Thanks to this method, your application will work even if the Flash Player ActiveX does not exist on the target system. With F-IN-BOX, hassling with Flash Player ActiveX installation issues is a thing of the past!
Demos, complete with source code, are available now!
Using F-IN-BOX you are able to create applications based on transparent flash movies. You can create applications with translucency non-rectangle windows. Use Flash to make applications with modern user interface. Using F-IN-BOX you are able to play Flash Video (FLV) from external files, URL or directly from memory. When F-IN-BOX loads Flash Video no temporary files are created everything runs directly from memory.
