Is there any way I can embed flash objects, i.e., externally hosted widgets in FC? ...In Flex?
There are many externally hosted widgets now available for sideshows, video etc, that are flash objects like Cooliris.
I am not an expert at this, so I apologize if anything I tell you is wrong. The experts are over on the Flex forums and you'll want to hop over there for deeper questions.
1) To load a SWF from within a SWF, you use the SWFLoader component.
2) FC allows you to embed a SWF within the same project by File > Import > SWF File. In this case, the SWF is compiled into your main SWF and increases its size.
3) To include a SWF that doesn't exist in your project, but that is somewhere else on the internet, you'll need to use FB. There are some cross-domain and security considerations, just like with HTML/JS. Here is the documentation on SWFLoader: http://livedocs.adobe.com/flex/3/html/help.html?content=controls_15.html
Hope that helps =\...
