    Shell out from Air/Apollo

    bryan_blackman
      I am running an Air application with the Flex 3 IDE. How can I exec or shell out to execute an external stand alone from within an Actionscript class. I need to play an .mov or .wmv (Apple or Microsoft video). I want the user to be able to choose the file from within my Flex app and if it is a mime type that I can not render, hand it off to the OS and let the OS render it with an appropriate application of it's choosing, based on mime type.
