    Is SWF File Format still closed?

      The swfutils.jar is now open source under MPL.
      We can hack swf files with swfutils.jar

      But "SWF and FLV File Format Specification" seems still closed.
      Does Adobe intend to open the SWF file format?

          Hi, good question.  You're right that we have not changed the license of the SWF specification at this time, but it's something that is always under consideration.  So you can use swfutils for whatever purpose the MPL allows, but the spec will still maintain its own license for now.<br /><br />Matt<br /><br /><br />On 3/4/08 9:32 PM, "Naoki INADA" <member@adobeforums.com> wrote:<br /><br />A new discussion was started by Naoki INADA in<br /><br />General Discussion --<br />  Is SWF File Format still closed?<br /><br />The swfutils.jar is now open source under MPL.<br />We can hack swf files with swfutils.jar<br /><br />But "SWF and FLV File Format Specification" seems still closed.<br />Does Adobe intend to open the SWF file format?<br /><br />________________________________<br />View/reply at Is SWF File Format still closed? <a href=http://www.adobeforums.com/webx?13@@.3c0650e3><a href=http://www.adobeforums.com/webx?13@@.3c0650e3><br />Replies by email are OK.<br />Use the unsubscribe <a href=http://www.adobeforums.com/webx?280@@.3c0650e3!folder=.3c060fa1><a href=http://www.adobeforums.com/webx?280@@.3c0650e3!folder=.3c060fa1>  form to cancel your email subscription.

            Thank you for your very quick response.

            I'm looking forward to be able to read SWF File Format Specification
            without any restrictions.
