Simple user interaction (pressing buttons, etc.) is scheduled for
0.2.0. Sound is disabled in swf-player, since sound output issues
have not been resolved. Sound works in the GStreamer plugin, and
thus in the GStreamer Media Player.
I'm surprised you don't complain about the random (and incessant)
crashes, which are fixed in CVS and will be part of the upcoming
0.1.3 release. :)
