I'm wondering if my Flex application can detect if a
flash.media.Microphone has been muted? For example, when the mute
button is enabled on a microphone, or by using volume control, then
display a message saying that the mic is muted.
Actually, the Microphone.muted value is whether the user as
Allowed or Disallowed access to the microphone. When you access a
microphone (through something like an attachAudio), you get a Flash
prompt asking if you want to allow access to the microphone. The
muted value depends on what the user answers there, and not,
unfortunately, on if the microphone is muted. It would make more
sense, though, if Microphone.muted were dependent on the mute
value, and not access allowed.
