Inconsistency in relative pathing: FLVPlayback

Flash 6 Comments »

For years, I have been frustrated by Flash's inability to load files relative to a the swf doing the loading; instead, the referenced files have always been relative to the html file that is instantiating the swf object.

Then came the AS 3.0 FLVPlayback component.  This guy behaves differently.  When in the Flash authoring environment, it loads the skin and the flv source relative to the .swf file.  This is as expected.

However, when in an html page, it loads the skin relative the htm file, but the flv relative to the .swf file.
