loading questions absolute vs. relative paths?

Recommended Posts

Our HTML/Javascript developer is implementing a video player I programmed using LoaderMax.


When he passes me an absolute flv path things work fine.


When he passes me an relative flv path things the player is trying to load relative to the SWF location and things are getting screwy.


Am I missing something here? I figured all paths in the loader should be relative to the HTML the swf is living in.


Thanks for any help or direction you can point me in.

I know exactly how you feel - Flash treats all relative URLs as relative to the HTML doc EXCEPT NetStream URLs. Funky, huh? That's a Flash issue, not a LoaderMax/VideoLoader issue. It's pretty well documented out on the web. I wish I had better news for ya. Send a nasty letter to Adobe if it makes you feel better :)
