This project is a simple ActionScript3 rip of Google zxing-lib, in order to read QR codes from webcam and trigger a js callback.

For possible uses, inspiration and some use, see my_blog_post
The webcam is initialized as 640x480. The swf only display the webcam in real-time


For most comprehensive use see example/ Use Firebug or Chrome Console to see results happening.


Use as you want, just be sure that your project is compatible with ZXing's Apache License 2.0
