safe flash to gibberish save

This "flash converter" technically is not using the flash format but is relying only on the content.

This "flash converter" does not read the flash file but rather converts the content to some unreadable format.

The content owner presumably allows that. And we are not violating Adobe's rights, since they have no rights to the content.

We then provide an HTML5+js gibberish player that uses the content to present an animation, in a way that is different from Adobe player, for example playing the animation backwards. The user may choose to play it forward if they wish to do so.

And so you get to view the book of Almagest animations or other Flash content from any website.

Meanwhile you have to suffice with watching them in the PDF format https://people.sc.f.../~dduke/animate.pdf

       I’m kinda surprised nobody has converted those yet, they’re classics. Can you do it in Google Web Designer?

       Why not?

       I don't understand your "lawyer" link - even apart from the fact that you put the LINK the wrong place ... I got to Lehto''s page and don't follow the relevance to this idea.

       ANYHOW… I like a challenge so I started looking for a way to play those Almagest animations on my iPad. Found “Puffin” web browser (link) which supports Flash by running it on their own cloud server. I know it’s not what you had in mind with your gibberish translator - but it gets the real job done, playing Flash.   

       Thanks for bringing this up, I love this kind of stuff.

       Software patents need to go away. [+] but this would still violate the software patent. [-]
