1) Message boards : Web interfaces : idea - embeddable boinc (Message 18616)
Posted 18 Jul 2008 by Joao Fernandes
Hey you guys,

I just had this probably dummy idea. I was wondering if it could be technically possible to have an web "embeddable" boinc client, something like an embedded player that used a small percentage of cpu power of everyone that accessed a website to participate in the grid. So, no server side use (at least for the one where the website is hosted at), just client use.

The website author could have a tool to select the project, the style of the embeddable player, etc and then could add the generated code to his page. This could be a way of scaling boinc and use the network in another way.

I'm not a IT guy so maybe I'm talking non-sense.
