Invoke SWF within Konfabulator widget

This is a technical challenge for which I am not certain there is actually a solution, but I am perplexed as to why not (others seem to have hit a wall trying to do it). I think it is possible if a clever mind sets at it. I will pay for a solution (the first if multiple people demonstrate that it is possible).

I am also likely to award follow-on work through RAC to the best implementation (which may not necessarily be the first; in other words two developers may ultimately benefit from this RFP).

Please familiarize yourself with the widget management framework called Konfabulator. It is a free download at [[url removed, login to view]][1].

I want to leverage Konfabulator in an educational software tool that incorporates a lot of multimedia. Ideally, we'd like to embed .SWF into Konfabulator widgets. I am not alone in this interest. See the following discussion threads:

I don't understand what restricts a COM object once instantiated by Konfabulator, from doing whatever it pleases on the desktop, including creation of an IE display window. The Konfabulator management claims it is not possible within the framework. How can this be? I would imagine that if a custom COM control were invoked and then it used COM to invoke IE, that it should work. Can Konfabulator limit what the secondarily invoked COM object does?

Please tinker with this idea. If you are the first to demonstrate a working solution (SWF running in a Konfabulator Widget), I will pay $100.

## Deliverables

P.S. Frankly, I am interested in more than just using SWF, so what I am really looking for is a generalized way to place media content in konfabulator windows. For example, a Konfab widget that is a streaming video viewer would also be very cool. Konfabulator widgets that wrap DirectX filter graph components are similarly exciting to me.


The Deliverables:

1) Complete and fully-functional working program(s) in executable form as well as complete source code of all work done.

2) Deliverables must be in ready-to-run condition, as follows (depending on the nature of the deliverables):

a) For web sites or other server-side deliverables intended to only ever exist in one place in the Buyer's environment--Deliverables must be installed by the Seller in ready-to-run condition in the Buyer's environment.

b) For all others including desktop software or software the buyer intends to distribute: A software installation package that will install the software in ready-to-run condition on the platform(s) specified in this bid request.

3) All deliverables will be considered "work made for hire" under U.S. Copyright law. Buyer will receive exclusive and complete copyrights to all work purchased. (No GPL, GNU, 3rd party components, etc. unless all copyright ramifications are explained AND AGREED TO by the buyer on the site per the coder's Seller Legal Agreement).
