    Can Flash Access URLs of Remote Servers  to Pull Videos/Images or does it have a "same server" security limitation?  If so, what could be the possible harm of URLs to different servers?

      Is Flash like Java in that it cannot open sockets or pull files from remote URLs?  I want to be able to embed a video on MySpace and I obviously don't have access to their FTP server.  Can I pull a video file and image files from a distant server?

       

      If they allow this, what is the possible reason for such a restriction?  As long as the Flash program runs in a sandbox I don't see any possible harm/security risk to a user's computer.
