well it seems strange that you're not getting nothing no even the 'myURL is not defined' message.
edit your html (manually ) and add this line:
after this line:
see if that makes a difference.
Thanks GWD. That was part of the solution.
I also had to go back to my publising settings and drop my Flash Player Version back to 8, then re-publish.
Does that mean Flash Player 9 doesn't support FlashVars? Is there another method we should use to pas vars into Flash?
I doubt very much that player 9 doesn't support it, because flash 8 content plays in player 9 no problems and if it didn't work it would very likely break a lot of flash 8 content out there. I'm sure we would have heard about it! Are you sure that you have player 9 installed for your browser? Also if you have firefox do a search for the flashswitcher plugin - its useful to have for testing different player versions.
I tend to use Geoff Stearn's SwfObject for embedding you might want to also check that out . http://blog.deconcept.com/
Well, I'm seeing the same thing, too. VERY frustrating -- following the adobe docs TO THE LETTER and finding that its a bug there. Using swfobject showed that flashvars params are working as expected. Adobe, save countless others n00bs time and update your code, please!
