    Shockwave: is it a good option for online delivery

    Level 7
      Hi Everyone,

      We've been developing a quiz application (for CD) for the last few years and
      a lot of time and effort has gone into it, but now we have a requirement to
      deliver the quiz online. Not a problem I thought, we'll shockwave it and
      publish online. However, there have been a few questions asked that I'd like
      to throw out there, hopefully I can get some answers here, I haven't got any
      joy elsewhere.

      1. Does IE ship with shockwave?
      2. Does NS ship with shockwave?
      3. As a last resort, can a shockwave movie be imported into Flash, rather
      than using the Shockwave player (if some users cannot install the shockwave
      player).

      Many thanks,
      Andrew

          As far as I know, none of those ship with Shockwave. I set up kiosks and new
          pc's for people, and it seems like I have to go install Flash too. So it
          seems like even if those browsers ship with Flash you usually have to go
          upgrade them, which is the same amount of trouble as installing Shockwave,
          of course unless you're on dial-up.

          You can put Flash in Shockwave, but you can't put Shockwave in Flash.
