AddInLocalConnection throws Error 1009


Level 2

I created an Actionscript Mobile Project and copied over the code from sampleApps/ScreenShareFlashOnlyExample.  When I run the app and click "Start Screen Sharing" the app throws the error below.  The app DOES connect to the designated room before the "Start Screen Sharing" button is clicked.  This happens in both the Android and iOS emulators.

Yes, there is no addin for mobile devices or anything other than Windows and OSX.

But adobe connect's screen sharing is working on ubuntu. Is this feature specific for Adobe?



Are you talking about screen sharing FROM linux ? Or watching a screen sharing session on a Linux machine ?

Hosting a screen sharing session requires the "add-in" and as far as I know we only have the add-in for Windows and OSX.

Viewing a screen sharing session can be done on any platform that supports the FlashPlayer (including Linux and mobile).

Hello Raff

I am just coming after hosting a adobe connect screen share session on Linux but when I am trying to launch my screen share app on Linux, I am not able to publish screen sharing.

Hi Sunny,

As you pointed out, Adobe Connect (formerly known as Connect Pro, and Breeze before that) now does support Linux screensharing:


It must be fairly recent as I didn't know about it either.

LCCS uses the ConnectNow add-in for screensharing and we currently only support Windows and Mac:

http://www.adobe.com/acom/systemreqs/ (ConnectNow is part of the Acrobat.com Suite of Apps)

Getting a new add-in for LCCS is a big undertaking (hundreds of testing hours among other things) so its unlikely that we will be supporting Linux screen sharing any time soon.

Thank you,

I am developing a mobile application in which I am receiving the screen sharing.Problem is It does not let my application to launch when I add the screen share receiver code in my appliation and following exception is raised:


VerifyError: Error #1014: Class mx.containers::Canvas could not be found.

   Like this exception is for Canvas other exceptions for mx:TextArea, mx:RichTextArea, mx:HBox also raise one after other while launching application.

    I am using ScreenShareSubscriberComplex class in my code.If I use ScreenShareSubscriber class then only exception for Canvas is raise and no exceptions are raised for Textarea, RichTextArea and HBox.

Issue is clear that subscriber classes are using mx components and these mx components cannot be used in mobile apps but what is the solution?
