Hi Jiro,

> Herrn Klaus,

Actually it is "Herr Klaus" or even better and complete "Guten Tag,  
Herr Klaus" :-)

So the Flash browser-plugin is used directly. Very interesting!

This raises the possibility of a Rev "play Flash" external :-)
Or even the same thing WITHOUT an external.

Glad i could help.
