Any workaround for loading on Mac?

Oct 26, 2010 1:55 AM

Does anybody know a workaround for loading e.g. with Flash Player on a Mac? It seems that Flash Player cannot load URLs with encoded characters from e.g., at least not in the network sandbox. I filed and I've been hunting for a workaround since - to no avail


Stripping out all encoded chars is not really what I want to do...

    Use a network monitor to see what Flash is trying to load.  Encoding should

    work fine.  Are you using URLLoader or some other component?

    I just want to make sure you have been careful in your setup.  I noticed

    that the SecurityError you posted might be expected since the request is to

    a different domain than the one hosting the main SWF.  When you said it

    worked for simpler URLs, was that html file residing next to the one that

    doesn't work and was the main SWF in the same palce as it is when it fails

    to access the complex URL?
