  1. It’s too bad the guys behind Smokescreen gave up on the project. We could have really used it for a quick fix for our site on moblie devices for streaming royalty free music on Productiontrax.com. I guess we’ll just have to keep working to get things going properly under HTML5 without it. Let me know if you find anything similar!
