Does anyone know what language would be best to do such a thing in? I mostly program in php but can do some java too. Is java capable of it? I'm assuming so, but I dont know how.
This can not be done from any web based language or client side script. Also, how would you distinguish a flash ad from a flash game or some other legit purpose? Keep in mind virtually every video sharing site like youtube uses flash to play videos.
It would be more feasible to crate a computer program at at the click of a button could do that. This way you would not have to decipher what is and is not legit, you would only have to do the process itself. This could probably be done in any computer programming language. If your purposes are exclusively Windows, I would recommend VB.net due to its easiness.
