TFlashPlayerControl in shell handlers

Postby GfxBro » Thu Sep 12, 2013 12:57 pm

How I can use TFlashPlayerControl in shell handlers (thumbnail and preview)?

I actually have something like this (for both handlers):

Code: Select all

LoadMovieFromStream(0, AStream)

This working in EXE, but in DLL freezes Explorer...

You need a message cycle (GetMessage / DispatchMessage) to create flashplayercontrol properly.

Create a form in a separate thread and create flashplayercontrol there.

Thank you.

Is there possible to do it without form?
