#11468 closed defect (fixed)

Flash security settings cannot be changed

Reported by: Eugene Lazutkin Owned by: Mike Wilcox
Priority: high Milestone: 1.6
Component: Dojox Version: 1.5
Keywords: Cc:
Blocked By: Blocking:


dojox\embed\Flash.js defines security settings as constants:

swLiveConnect: "true",
allowScriptAccess: "sameDomain",

Specifically allowScriptAccess: "sameDomain" prevents using SWF files from Google/AOL CDN.

It would be nice if these settings can be overwritten by user.

Look at FileUploader?, line 1279. That will show you how to set those parameters.

That was not meant to be rude :) FileUploader? is always a good reference for using Flash. But here is a quick example:

var args = {
	path: this.swfPath.uri || this.swfPath,
	width: w,
	height: h,
	vars: {
		isDebug: this.isDebug,
	params: {

this.flashObject = new dojox.embed.Flash(args, this.domNode);

Personally I don't care about FileUploader. I care about dojox.av.FLVideo. dojox.embed.Flash is used there, but I fail to see how I can add/change missing parameters. I suspect that dojox.av.FLAudio has the same problem.

And it is not an enhancement, but rather a bug that renders dojox.av.FLVideo completely unusable from CDN or from a different domain. The simple fix (allowScriptAccess: "always") helps.

Ok, so this was about av.FLVideo, not about embed.Flash. embed.Flash seems fine.

(In [22531]) Fixes #11468 allowed ability to set security settings, and also added them in as defaults (so one likely shouldn't have to)

(In [22532]) Refs #11468 - Uploader was missing some security settings. It was surprising that it worked before.
