Re: Complete, foolproof Realplayer installation instructions

Has this consistently worked?  If so, I have no idea how to use a hex editor-- is one 
even packaged with eCS?  Is there a copy of the patched file somewhere?

I forgot, I wrote a REXX script that does it:

=================
this REXX script will do the trick.  Run it in your plugins directory; 
it's up to you to rename the original dll and copy the new file to 
NPSWF2.DLL...

/* */
sourcefile = 'npswf2.dll'
targetfile = 'npswf2.new'
filesize = stream(sourcefile, 'c', 'query size')
buffer = charin(sourcefile,,filesize)
position = pos('7.0 r14', buffer)
newbuffer = overlay('7.0 r19', buffer, position)
call charout targetfile, newbuffer

RE: Complete, foolproof Realplayer installation instructions

On my eCS 1.2 system, the 7a package works fine, but the 7b package has
audio issues (SBLive card with Sander's driver.)

I just stuck with 7a.

Hi, Thomas,

The official Innotek release of Flash 5 is outdated for most sites, 
which now use Flash 6 or 7.  Innotek never released a Flash 7 port, for 
whatever reason, but a copy of it escaped into the wild...

ftp://os2.fannet.ru/pub/filesos2/apps/mmedia/flash7a.zip

In April, Jimmy posted helpful instructions for upgrading that copy to 
the latest version:

Here is how I updated Flash7a to R19. Under WinXP NetScape 7.2 I went to Macromedia.com and acquired the latest Flash update: FlashPlayer7Installer.exe After installing this on NetScape 7.2, I goto its plugins directory and copy NpSwf32.dll (832728 bytes 06/09/2004 r19) .. On OS2, I goto Innotek and acquire Ipluginw.dll and place that in my Firefox/components directory. I download the Flash7a.zip package from Fannet.ru ... I shutdown Firefox. I unzip flash7a to my Firefox/plugins directory then startup Firefox and verify that Flash7 R14 is recognized by about:plugins and that it will truely handle flash (.swf) content. I then shutdown Firefox. Using Biew hex editor, I zap the flash7a dll NPSWF2.DLL from r14 to r19. I then copy the Netscape 7.2 NpSwf32.DLL r19 over to my Firefox/plugins directory, thus overwriting the NPSWF32.DLL r14 that came with the flash7a.zip package. I then delete compreg.dat and startup Firefox . Checking about:plugins now shows Flash7 R19 and when I access macromedia.com to test the flash, it verifies that I am running the 'latest' flash7 R19. And that is that. Don't get confused by the DLLs. NPSWF2.DLL is just being used as a frontend to NPSWF32.DLL. NPSWF32 is doing all of the real work. Jimmy Williams
I don't know if there's been a later release of Flash or not. NB -- there is another zip file of an OS/2 port called flash7b.zip. As far as I know no one has got it to work, though.
