Hi guys
I surfed the following site using WebKit , downloaded just few days ago . and found flash looks to be installed already .

Flash Detection
Ex. 4A - Installed: true, Version: 9,0,999,0
Ex. 4B - Flash 8,0,34,0 or higher is installed and enabled

Shockwave Detection
Ex. 5A - Installed: false, Version: null
Ex. 5B - Shockwave not installed or not enabled

but problem is I am not able to see swf file , for example the files on site Youtube .


I did same thing by firefox , but it's working . 
I wonder how to get start write plugin on webkit , especial I don't have MAC computer .
and I all develop my code on Linux .
is there anyone give me a simple example then I can involve this fancy world ?
Kevin ..

Please provide more information about your environment - which OS you are using, which port of WebKit, and which browser.

I work on Ubuntu 9.04 and webkit check out form truck few days ago and sorry for I am not familiar with which port you mentioned . there are two browsers into my computer firefox and webkit now .
I installed webkit few days ago and try to surf internet , found movies on net are not able to see but firefox is working after install plugins . I wonder why when I surf internet by webkit . it actually has no any screen pops up or clue to tell me which plugins I have to install .
