    Gzip and Flash

    ..::ONER::..
      Hi,
      I'm having a problem with mod_gzip when trying to retrieve xml files using get_Url() on flash on IE.
      The getTotalBytes() method returns the value of gzipped Content-Length while getLoadedBytes returns the gunzipped Content-Length.
      Thus my script won't consider my file as loaded and keeps waiting for the (getLoadedBytes == getTotalBytes) event to happen. This script works just fine on Firefox.

      My guess is IE is guilty of not providing accurate values to the flashplayer.
      My current solution is to disable mod_gzip with the mod_gzip_on No directive in a .htaccess file.
      Anyone having similar problems and a way to solve it?
