Awesome, thanks. I applied the smaller ones. (I even added tests for
one! ;)) Here are some comments for the 2 others:
It looks a lot like you just copied the code for duplicateMovieClip
and removeMovieclip from swfdec_sprite_movie_as.c. Besides copy/paste
being evil, it's also missing tests, which I'd love to have for these
pretty intrusive action opcodes. So I think I'll have a hard look at
them myself soon.
Also, I'd want to keep the name RemoveSprite and CloneSprite for the
actions. THis is because I'm trying to copy the official naming as
much as possible to avoid confusion. (see for example
This patch is definitely not what I intended it to be. I intended to
(kinda like the SpiderMonkey code does it) create a SwfdecAsWith
object, which is a subclass of SwfdecAsScope and replace
It might also make sense to treat With as a function call and
construct a new frame when encountering it.
I haven't really looked into it. It again looks like it requires lots

Currently a SwfdecSpriteMovie is always attached to a corresponding
SwfdecSprite. This needs to be changed to support lots of features,
like createEmptyMovieClip(), MovieClipLoader or loadMovie(). It'll
probably require gettig rid of the SwfdecRootSprite/SwfdecSprite and
the SwfdecRootMovie/SwfdecMovie distinctions. But I haven't come
around to doing this refactoring yet.

Those should all be implemented. in swfdec_sprite_movie_as.c

_levelN might be broken now that you say it. I changed how child
movies get accessed and that might have broken _levelN. I'll write a
test for it.

Just not implemented. Requires someone adding the functionality to
SwfdecSpriteMovie. Those functions should match pretty well to cairo.

They should be, as long as they are properly named and are really
children of the root movie. See swfdec_sprite_movie_get_variable() for
how they get accessed.

Is implemented in swfdec_movie_class_get_variable().
> Sound object
Is a TODO item, as it's not really important for functionality of the
Flash file and requires some changes to the audio handling.
