But it's showing up in Unicode or Western. How can I change
the encoding in the flash application? I've played with all the
encoding settings in both Firefox and IE and they only change
encoding for the browser text, not in the flash.
since player 6 the standard encoding is unicode (good thing,
as it also covers russian), you can (even if not recomended) tell
the player to use the systems encoding (likley to be russian in
your case) when you make/programm an application, but I don't know
of a way to change the encoding to use on the user side.
If that application is made to run in player5 (probably the
only explanation for the strange behavior) it would run as expected
in player 5 (onja russian system environment), on the other hand
I'd think, that even Players > 5 would switch the encoding to
system for compatibility reasons automaticaly when playing a file
made for version 5.
(Adobe/MM is doing usually doing a great job in that regard-
So it might have been a server upgrade on the side of the app
provider, and they'll likley to learn about theri error soon.
