I'll try to do this. Can you hive me some tips for how to start doing
this and the nudge in the right direction. I know about mozilla
bugzilla but if there are some tips and suggestions please share them

I'm not aware of other open vendors, can you point me in the right dirrection?
I'm only aware of livna codecs with which swf-dec works but are
