We are working on a online project where we have some 600 MB
The complete project is made using flash & HTML.
Objective: To access few flash files from a CD ROM where the
rest of the files are online. (So that the user doesn’t have
to wait for these video to download from server)
Method: Autostart the CD ROM with some initial
file(start.html) which retrieves the users CD ROM path. Then the
page is redirected to the website page (FlashHolder.html) passes
the path along with the URL. This FlashHolder.html page then tries
to load the video from the file location it has received as part of
The issue: This works perfectly file till Flash 7, but with
introduction of flash 8 this is not working. Kindly let me know if
there is a way to access locally placed flash files from web server
in flash 8.
