Sorry Chris, I don't have anything to compile Flash. Am almost clueless.

Re the browser, I'm using Firefox 3.6 with Windows 7 starter on an Acer Aspire netbook.

The PDF video just seemed like a lot of pages scrolling quickly. I didn't get the hang of what should be happening apart from that. Will view it with Chrome and give you feedback. Explorer seems to have a problem on this machine of late. Have no idea why.

I did state the word 'beta' Mark!  The code is untidy, the SVG
graphics chunky, and it's in no way fully tested.  But, it's
about 80% there. Something to build on if I get the incentive.
More to the point, I actually managed to get a version into the
wild.  It's been a while..

A heck of a lot of variables to take into consideration as well.
Browser versions, flash plug-in versions, build quirks, etc, etc,
ad-nauseam.  Egad, one only has to take a wee look here,


to see what one is up against.

( A few you-tube rips for testing ). Try downloading the script,
compiling and running locally. The included README file has all
the details.  For example, did you perchance get to view the PDF
conversion of the Bash Guide?  There is simple integrated keyboard
viewer which allows you to navigate through the document, and also scale it up and down.

Pass! Depends!!  Probably disabled it when avoiding some nasties.
What system and browser(s) are you using?

If you like that you'll probably be into Bobby McFerrin as well..

Further feedback welcomed.
