Could there be support for shockwave player.

Asked by Grifter on 2007-04-15

Hello, I want to know if the ubuntu team has anyplans to try to support shockwave player(used to be a Macromedia product now Adobe). I believe it could open up more gaming possibilities for linux as a whole because I am certian if ubuntu dose it other distros will follow. you guys are great and definatly worthy of the publicity you get in the linux community I advertise for you when ever I can I just graduated Remington college here in Jacksonville Florida and passed out a couple copies to my professors and fellow students and some of my friends keep up the great work I am still a noob when it comes to linux but ubuntu made the transition a breeze I am running ver 6.06 Dapper drake on a Dell latitude D505 and it runs fine I still have issues with totem I looked it up and it is a little complex so I just do utue unfortunatly I cant see any movie trailers. You have a great product I think better than Windows and like I said before keep up the great work by making a linux that works for the people and not vice verse.

This is actually dependent on Adobe itself, but since they have released a fine version of Flash 9, to Linux, perhaps they will also do it for Shockwave is there is enough market demand. Since Ubuntu development and Canonical have no control over this, support is dependent on the 3rd party's cooperation. Hope this helps.

Can you help with this problem?
