I have really strange issue with the loadMovieNum method in
flash 8 and IE browser.
I try to load an external movie via URL from other domain as
is the main movie location. The crossdomain.xml file is in the root
of this remote server (this isn't the issue). So it looks, that
everything is ok. But when I try to check the load status, the
movie is loaded but it isn't displayed (running).
I did a lot of test (really large research) and find out,
that when I try to check, if the movie is loaded (example):
if (_level3 != null && _level3._framesloaded > 0)
the movie wont run.
When I check this only with:
if (_level3 != null)
then the movie will run.
I'm not able to access the script, because I haven't access
to it. So other methods as getBytesLoaded() and getBytesTotal()
aren't working. When I try to check only the property of the loaded
movie everything is working fine in Firefox, Opera. But in IE not.
It's possible to check, if I have access to the script of the
loaded movie ?
Strange is, that for some movies is this working fine even in
I have played the with IE settings and I find out, that when
I set the check new version automaticaly option (in IE), then when
I reloaded the page with the flash movie, the movie is loaded fine
even in IE and the embedded movie is working fine. So I think, that
this is not the security issue, but some bug with IE cache. Or in
Firefox (if this shouldn't work at all).
The same result I have got, when I publish the file local and
try to run it. The local dir is in localTrusted sandbox, so this
can't be issue that I'm not able to access network swf files.
