save flash player application to desktop?
is there anyway i can save a flash player based program as an application.. example, would i be able to save the flash version of the paltalk express client and load it as if it was an independant application?

You could save the SWF file, you could write a script to launch it in a browser or swfdec or whatever, but that particular app is highly unlikely to work if it's not actually running on that website.

In fact, I just tried that, and it, in fact, does not work when loaded from your hard drive.

Try it yourself:


google-chrome Paltalk.swf

As to the other part of the question:

Can you package an SWF into a standalone executable so that it runs as a desktop application? No you can't.
