I know nothing about the Flash app, but here is some general information:
A Slingbox supports only one stream, so it's not possible, even in theory, to directly view its output on more than one computer at one time. Attempting to connect to a box in use results in an error. If you are the administrator, you can force the connection, but that disconnects the other user.
You could build a custom media server that would receive and buffer the stream, sending it out to several connected clients. However, there are numerous challenges to creating such a server. For starters, you would lose the automatic bandwidth regulation, since all clients would be receiving data at the same rate. You could set an arbitrary slow rate (mediocre quality), but clients who could not receive at that rate would be unable to view the content at all. There are also issues with stream encryption, presentation time stamps, etc.
Please describe your application; someone may be able to suggest an easier solution.
My application is developed in flash and I just need to be able to connect to the box, to see the stream.
My question is: it is legal? Because I can receive the stream, and see it on my application.
To the problem of various connections I will see other solutions. Thanks.
Thanks for posting in the forums!
I would recommend using the embedded SlingPlayer. With the embedded SlingPlayer, you can put SlingPlayer into your own web site or blog.
Below is the link for that:

I work with desktop applications made in flash technology.
I can make a iframe inside my flash application, and call 'http://slingplayer.slingbox.com/embedded/slingplayer.php'.
But when I run the air/apk application in tablet the application works?
I can pay 10,99€ by the application to work in tablet, but i need that inside my flash application.
Can you help me?
