I''m looking to use flash 5 as the client and whatever as the server. I can''t find anything that allows realtime data streaming or anything like that. Anyone? ~ jesse

I think flash uses an XML socket layer which allows you to exchange data with external servers. Might want too look into the XML interface. I wanted to do something like that as well, and that''s how we intended to do it.

Good Luck!

We have a user interface that embeds Flash movies from which we extract the bitmap data and upload to textures. The Flash movies connect to the hosting application using HTTP through a custom Moniker we implement, stuffing XML down the pipe to it. We''ve found that Flash versions previous to 6.0.42 have been very unstable, though (and 7 is better than 6).

I don''t see any reason why you couldn''t do the same thing, requesting XML from some remote server. Unless that''s a feature new in 6, not available in 5.
