Proof Of Concept: Flash Player On The iPhone Via A MobileSafari Plugin [video]

This is a proof-of-concept project to show it’s possible to create iPhoneOS Safari plugins. The code structure is pretty much exactly the same as a Safari plugin on the desktop except it uses UIView instead of NSView.If you build and install this plugin, your browser will report itself Flash capable and show a red dummy view wherever you come across Flash content in any browser using the system WebKit.
