    Later SWF version loaded inside earlier version SWF

    journeydude
      I'm trying to find out if there are issues with loading a SWF movie clip using:

      onClipEvent(load) {
      this.createEmptyMovieClip("empty_mc",9);'
      empty_mc.loadMovie("compiledwithgreaterversion.swf");
      }

      If you compile the swf that this is created with to a few versions behind, say Flash V6 and AS1, and the compiledwithgreaterversion.swf file is compiled with Flash 8 and AS2 code, what happens to the player? Does it downgrade the AS VM so it runs the loaded movie with lowest code version possible, or will it run the loaded movie using the AS2 code? I'm loading inside a browser plugin of version 9 or greater.

      Hoping this makes sense and someone with some knowhow can answer...

      Thanks.
