I am starting a music/lifestyle blog. I want to be able to post songs from the artists on the blog (with their permission of course) on the blog's Facebook page to get the word of mouth going. I don't have enough web expertise to code from scratch, but if I had a player I could customize, I can modify the look and feel to my the blog. Any ideas on a Flash based mp3 player I could use? It could work on other platforms but it definitely has to work on Facebook too.
PS. thinking of something along the lines of what soundcloud uses www.facebook.com/soundcloud

I give up.
I saw a flash cartoon. Maybe, what, ten years ago? There was a miniature king. Birds. Talking birds? It was dream-like. The sound sparse and excellent. I remember the thing being theme-wise pretty dark. I've since looked high and low and have not been able to find it.

I have been asked to animate some poem titles to be projected during a theatrical performance. I'm not having any luck finding resources. I'm not even sure what I've been asked to do is possible without doing hand-drawn animation. Anyone got any places I could look? [more inside]

Does flash show as flash in Windows task manager in XP? - It's invisible even when I play videos which are obviously using flash.
Are the resources consumed by flash 'lumped in' with the CPU utilization consumed by my browser as I see it in Task Manager? [more inside]

The Internet! Full of fun
, narrated explainer videos
that usually involve some kind of simple 2D animation (sometimes hand-drawn, sometimes cobbled together from other images) with a voice-over. But how are people making them? If Flash is in terminal decline, as I keep hearing, what are the most popular software tools for piecing together 2D online animation?

Initially, I was having issues with Flash in Firefox, fixing that caused problems with my video drivers breaking. Partially fixing that caused problems with Chrome. Is there a way to fix all of these things? [more inside]

My 9-year-old daughter likes to animate things on GoAnimate.com. The website allows you to upload flash animations, and she'd like to make her own animations of, say, the Sesame Street characters.
The canonical program for building flash animations is Adobe Flash Professional. I'm guessing that is beyond her capabilities (and may be beyond mine!). Are there simpler programs that allow a patient but unsophisticated user to build very simple flash animations?

I'm looking for a mini flash game that I used to play back in the day (I would say, 2006?) that if I remember correctly had graphics similar to critter crunch
Their were a bunch of mini games and it looked Japanese. I have been dying to find it again, but this is all I can remember about it. I'm hoping one of you knows what I'm talking about. Anyone?

Why is this method inaccessible?
My document class (Main) has a public function setButtonStates(). I have a custom class that extends MovieClip that needs to access that function. There are 5 instances of this class on the stage at compile-time (and they are never removed) but the compiler isn't happy. It says "1195 Attempted access of inaccessible method setButtonStates through a reference with static type Main". [more inside]

Chrome requires, via yellow pop down box, that I manually allow Flash to run on nearly every webpage I load (presumably just the ones that use Flash), each time I load it. How can I stop this? Complication: Chrome is no longer supported for my OS. [more inside]

I’m trying to remember a recent browser-based Flash game. It was a vertical scroller, overhead space-themed shooter, something I saw online within the past 6-12 months. You had a ship and you’d pick up weapons. Your bullets were meagre at first, and then numerous as you upgraded your weapons. The screen would fill up with bad guys, bullets everywhere, general mayhem that you could only survive with a constant inflow of invincibility powerups.
What was this game?

I am creating a Flash presentation for a fundraiser combatting child sex slavery. It will show a stopwatch, and every two minutes a number will increment showing how many children have been taken. I have it all put together in Flash CS4, but am a visual design person flummoxed on making the script for incrementing the dynamic text by 1 every 120 seconds. Any actionscripters out there who can advise will be helping a fantastic cause. Thanks!

I'm looking for some websites for the beginner. I'm fine with the animation part. That is (relatively) easy. But I'm pretty much totally lost on the Action script part of it, and the Adobe tutorials are a little complicated for my idiot self. I'm just a little ol' designer and all this talk of code and scripts and computer lingo is freaking me out. I'll take anything. Any ideas. Any help. Anything. Thank you.

Our new Kindle Fire is great, but it tells us we need to update our Flash Player when we want to watch Glee. If I try to DL the new file from the Adobe message, it seems to stall right after it starts. If I go to settings, it shows that Flash is " Always on". I haven't tried any other shows on FOX, but it seems to work fine for NBC stuff. Any Ideas?

When I save MS Word docs, a lot of my spacings between words are being eliminated. In just about every sentence, it happens at least once! To be clear, instead of something like "and the", it will say "andthe". Could it be a faulty flash drive? [more inside]
