Smokescreen, a JavaScript-Based Flash Player

Tumbleweed writes “How to make Steve Jobs your mortal enemy: Smokescreen, a 175kB, 8,000-line JavaScript-based Flash player. Written by Chris Smoak at RevShock, a mobile ad startup, and to be open-sourced ‘in the near future.’ From Simon’s blog: ‘It runs entirely in the browser, reads in SWF binaries, unzips them (in native JS), extracts images and embedded audio and turns them into base64 encoded data: URIs, then stitches the vector graphics back together as animated SVG. … Smokescreen even implements its own ActionScript bytecode interpreter.’ Badass!”
