Macromedia uses third party software for VOIP, Spirit DSP. Here's
something they sent me:

The Breeze Meeting launch process (off-topic, sorry) uses some
undocumented ActionScript from a SWF to launch an application. This
allows Breeze to do things that browser security generally prevents,
like running their screen sharing and VOIP activex controls. As I
recall, Breeze Meeting uses a desktop app that is basically a shell
for IE (or WebKit on Macs) that plays the Breeze SWF file and also
hosts the VOIP control. The ActionScript will only launch an
application that it downloads from a Macromedia web site. How's that
for building a competitive advantage into your platform?
Plenty of other ways to make this work, though.
