Webcam Access unclickable

I just did a Facebook Webcam game and came across a nasty firefox bug. Sometimes the cam panel popping up is unclickable. (Firefox on Mac)


The strange thing is:

  1. Works like a charm in Safari
  2. Works like a charm outside of Facebook

But I expierenced the problem on some pages outside FB aswell.

Here is the magic (once again thanks to Martin):

    if ($.browser.mozilla) {
function addMargin() {
    $("#cont").css('margin-left', window.outerWidth % 2 ? '0' : '0.5px')

The problem is that your swf is displayed on HALF PIXELS. Just move the container in which you putted your swf and it should work like a charm.

Link where i stole this from

Hidden heroes.

I really like that page.


Facebook App sourcecode

After beeing asked to publish my sourcecode for the ImageViewer app – here it is:


  1. free to use
  2. no warranty
  3. no documentation
  4. osx zip (might cause package problems on win)

ASSURF [multiple references] from Eugene Zatepyakin on Vimeo.

my first Flash Facebook app

Recently I created a facebook app called “ImageViewer”.

The App shows your Photos in fullscreen, and you can also browse through your friend’s photos.


Here are some coding hints:

  • you can’t use fbml (doesn’t allow flash fullscreen)
  • you need some php params provided in the iframe url (session secret…)
  • using “WebSession” for the Facebook authentication worked fine for me
  • I couldn’t find a way to test the app locally. So I highly recommend a FTP ant task for a good workflow
  • Working with one big model class (handling the whole facebook data) worked fine.
  • It wasn’t as anoying as I thought ;)

AS3 Audioplayer Muxx

After working with the great videoplayer Pyro I decided having a good audioplayer would be nice aswell. I couldn’t find anything similar to Pyro so I wrote one by myself. I rarely tested it, but all functions seem to work nice.
