We are creating online language teaching games and have a
collection of precious images (and mp3 files) that we want to keep
secure but use in the product.
I've been trying to retrieve the image files from a MySQL
database in Shockwave using PreloadNetThing and a php script.
The system works fine for extracting whole casts - preload
the cct Shockwave cast from the db, then set the filename of cast
equal to the url of the php script.
For individual images or other file types, the system fails
when I try to ImportfileInto or set Filename of member equal to the
URL of the php script - I suspect that the material is cacheing
(the NetId returns OK, and I can use DownloadNetThing to download
an image file to a local disk from the db, but as you probably
know, that option is not available in Shockwave). Any ideas how
this could be done in a tidy way?
