options for sticking c++ in firefox / internet explorer
Posted on 2007-11-27
I have a third party library which allows you to create a listening/sending port, then transfers pixel data between the two applications using the port code. This works fine. Right now I have an image 'server' which is a stand alone app, it sends the pixel data to some image 'viewer' which is again a stand alone app. It receives the pixel data, saves to disk, then the user can display the images.
I'm wondering if it's possible to run the code in a browser. The 3rd party library is all cross platform C++. I can't uinderstand how it would be possible, but I thought at least on win32 with activex it's posisble.
Is this possible? The app embedded in the browser would need to be able to listen to a port to receive pixel data, then render the image into the browser.
Any starting points would be helpful,
