C++ – Integrating swf in c++


Is there any way of making c++ gui applications that include .swf?

The swf file are pretty small and easier to make than gif or other kind of animations so it would be nice to be able to include them.

Some recommendations of a library, free or even open source…

Best Solution

You can host the Flash player itself in your app. You just have to implement the webbrowser side of the plugin architecture you choose. You have two choices, Netscape style plugins and ActiveX. If you only want to run on Windows, hosting it as an ActiveX control is very straightforward. If you want to run cross platform, you have to implement the browser side of the NPAPI plugin stuff, which is actually fairly involved.
