I know many people have suggested converting a flash movie to QuickTime, but that doesn't give us all the controls we need.  Is there a Flash plug-in for RealBasic that anyone knows of?

You dont actually need to do the converting.
You can use the MOV player and that will open the flash - just like QuickTime can play flash files AS flash files - so you wont lose any of your interactivity.

Quicktime player can play "some" of the swf files. Not all media types are supported (for Flash V6).
There's no full solution to this.
Instead, why not do it in flash player? Could you tell the point?

We want to make sure the artwork is not available - it's easy to convert a swf to an fla.

No! you dont need a flash plugin...

Quicktime can play flash files, so if you use the quicktime plugin and source if from a swf file it will play.
If you're still worried about your artwork you're going to have to change it to a movie format (avi/mpeg/mov/etc) and do it that way.

They are the only methods.
