Pledge for funding to the Gnash project to get AVM2 support
19th October 2010

The Gnash project is the most promising solution for a Free Software Flash implementation. It has done great so far, but there is still far to go, and recently its funding has dried up. I believe AVM2 support in Gnash is vital to the continued progress of the project, as more and more sites show up with AVM2 flash files.

To try to get funding for developing such support, I have started a pledge with the following text:

"I will pay 100$ to the Gnash project to develop AVM2 support but only if 10 other people will do the same."

- Petter Reinholdtsen, free software developer

Deadline to sign up by: 24th December 2010

The Gnash project need to get support for the new Flash file format AVM2 to work with a lot of sites using Flash on the web. Gnash already work with a lot of Flash sites using the old AVM1 format, but more and more sites are using the AVM2 format these days. The project web page is available from . Gnash is a free software implementation of Adobe Flash, allowing those of us that do not accept the terms of the Adobe Flash license to get access to Flash sites.

The project need funding to get developers to put aside enough time to develop the AVM2 support, and this pledge is my way to try to get this to happen.

The project accept donations via the OpenMediaNow foundation, .

I hope you will support this effort too. I hope more than 10 people will participate to make this happen. The more money the project gets, the more features it can develop using these funds. :)
