So I am having a lazarus application built that is going to show some flash .sfw files. It would be great if I could embed the flash player inside the lazarus .exe so that for those that do not have the flash player, they do not need to install flash.

Can this be done through a lazarus application !

My first post here, so Hi guys, nice to meet you all.

I know that with Macromedia Flash 8 you could create kinda .exe files, so possibily its posible still now, maybe you can add it as a resource and load it depending on the request, but don't know other solutions

Describe me what do you exactly want to do? Just show the .sfw in a separate windows? Or you want it embedded in a form (a kinda frame??) with other controls around it?

I ask this, because if it can be in a separate window, then you could include the flash player with your software (as a separate file, or as a resource), or you can inculude the .exe variant of your .sfw again as external file, or as resource.
But if you want it in a frame, with other controls around it, then I don't know

For my old Delphi project I used f-in-box component to achieve exactly what you describe. I have not tried to use it with Lazarus thought, because this solution would be Windows-only.

The component is commercial and rather expensive. Since source code is available after purchase only, you can try DLL edition that seems to have free compiled demo version available.

But IMHO, the most convenient and crossplatform way to embed Flash into application written in Pascal is to write a web application. If you want to deploy to the desktop you can use embedded web server (that can be based e.g. on Ararat Synapse examples) and something like Mozilla Prism as a frontend. This does make development and deployment more complicated, but you get complete DHTML/JavaScript/Flash/Video/Audio/Networking-enabled, open source development platform.
