Cocoa WebView and the Adobe Flash plugin
Since hybrid applications using the UIWebView are not recognized by the Adobe Flash plugin installer it appears that you cannot embed flash in a page displayed in a UIWebView and expect it to play swf files.
It is also true that the plugin has a defect. If you launch the default browser, be it Safari or Firefox, from within your application to display play a swf file the plugin crashes both browsers. If the browser is already open and running then the browser will open a window and you can play the swf.
I am including this ability in a future release of QuickConnectMac and QuickConnectWin but my opinion is don’t waste your time. Produce the movies as mp4s and you’ll have a much better user experience.
