So what's the big deal?
Well, all things I have ever made in Flash, I work with Flash since version 4 (1999), can be used in-world. All games and interactive gadgets I made for education can be played inside the virtual worlds that I work on. Flash runs like it should, all controls work. The big advantage is that all gadgets I could not program in OpenSim can now be made in Flash and projected on a prim.
What's the limitation?
|In front of the YouTube page|
One other limitation is that webpages on a prim are shown individual, so if I select a link on a page, other users will not see that.
How about streaming video like YouTube and Ustream?
Well that works too. If you place the YouTube url in the parcel media you can browse and play movies like on a normal browser. The only thing that does not work is the full screen button so if you want to show a particular YouTube video full size on a prim it is best to create a webpage with an embedded YouTube player.
Another great thing you can do is using Ustream (www.ustream.tv) for free streaming real-time video from your webcam onto the prim. Ustream uses the Flash player to connect your webcam to the web. And it gets even better with the free Ustream Producer (www.ustream.tv/producer) which gives many options like mixing your webcam with screen captures and importing video and audio.
