FlashPhoner is an Adobe Flash/Flex based softphone from FlashPhoner.com. While the flash portion of the phone is Open Source (GPL) it requires a license for the backend RTPM to SIP conversion software. The RTMP to SIP conversion is provided by Wowza Media Server and a Plugin for Wowza by FlashPhoner.com. This server software is available as a demo from their website for checking it out, and you can purchase licensing online.


The FlashPhoner Module itself is part of FusionPBX and will install like any other module. There are however some dependencies that need to be installed. You will need to install and configure Wowza Media Server with the FlashPhoner plugin from their respective sites. You will also need our customized FlashPhoner client.
