An anonymous reader writes “Mozilla’s Chris Double has an interesting post on his blog about a port of the VP8 decoder to Flash. He writes, ‘Ralph Hauwert has been posting on twitter about work he’s done on getting WebM decoding to work by compiling the libvpx source code using Adobe’s Alchemy technology. Alchemy is a research project that allows compilation of C and C++ libraries into code that runs on the ActionScript virtual machine used by Flash.’ Of course, it’s very slow and Adobe says that they’ll bring native VP8 support to Flash in due course, but implementing a VP8 decoder in ActionScript is an interesting project nonetheless.”
