We experienced problems with the translucent (windowless) flash control after updating the flash player ActiveX control to the latest version 18.104.22.168 on Windows systems. The transparent flash animations are rendered on a black background instead of the correct transparent background.
The problem can easily be reproduced using the Sample4_Translucency.exe precompiled sample from from the f-in-box delphi demo 3.5.4 download archive. If the program is executed on a system with a pre Flash 11 player installed the translucency is displayed correctly (e.g. flash player 10.3 or below). If executed with using the flash player 11 the circles are displayed on a black rectangle.
Do you have any hints how to avoid this behavior?
Thanks in advance.
