    Azure Blob Storage Hosting?

    jrichviewfla

      First off, I am not a flash developer (sorry!). I have a client that has handed me some files and html tags which render a video with subtitles (names changed below for client privacy). The SWF file is quite large (naturally). So my question is whether I can somehow change the below to load its video content from a URL rather than just a local file name so that I can host the large files in Windows Azure blob storage rather than on the web server VM itself?  In other words, will an embedded flash player object load via a URL? If so, what would need to change here?  I've tried a few things and nothing worked.
