I'm developing a Flash widget for use on a variety of social
networking sites that depends on the getURL() function to go to an
external Web site. Unfortunately, some sites are putting the
'allowNetworking="internal"' attribute into the embed and/or object

To get around this, I'd like to provide an alternative for
users that displays the link to go to which they can copy and paste
into their Web browser. However, I need to get the value of the
allowNetworking attribute, or otherwise determine what security

FlashVars to do this.
Is there any way I can do this using Flash 8/ActionScript
