Weyert, I dont quite understand. I never use frames. So since all my code is always in the first frame does that mean that for the life of my app I could only make ten network calls no matter how long it was running? That would be incredible. If so does this make it impractical to check the

Yeah, that sounds right. But I dont know how you could play a sound if it doesnt support mp3. I wonder what the baseline assumption is for flash lite and whether you are supposed to be able to assume that the sound class works normally, by playing mp3s. Regards Hank On 1/3/06, Weyert de Boer

Jesse's comments about how his code is basically disposable (my word) is interesting. I think it reflects the nature of flash and its history. For example I am working on a fairly complex project. I have been working on it for more than a year. It has lots of pieces that interact. And what

Of course, in thinking about this, with the new binary socket functionality, midi control could all be done by just writing a simple localhost to midi gateway. This would be pretty simple to do, and is probably what is needed anyway to deal with different drivers etc. And it makes total sense that

I think midi support would be nice. In truth though, the question is a little broader than midi. It would be great if there were a sandbox safe way to access USB and/or firewire devices. Midi is but one. It would need to work something like the way that the webcam access works where the software

I dont understand. Are you saying that raw sockets is a security nightmare? or bytearrays? or the sound buffer access? Raw sockets and bytearrays are already in flash 8 so are you saying there is already a security nightmare? Or are you saying that sound buffer access would somehow tip the scales
