Description

Hi guys,

how can i play a flv-file which is stored on my local harddisk while having the player-swf inside my webapp?

Sadly the mediaURL is rewritten automatically using the _normalizeURL function. So i created a custom widget using dojox.av.FLVideo which does not rewrite the media-url but it is still not working. my guess is that the problem is located inside the player-swf.

Is a workaround available? Tried it with those mediaUrls: "D:/sample.flv", "file://D:/sample.flv"

Probably you can't, due to security restrictions. In any case for the future post questions to the dojo-interest mailing list. This is a bug database.

This is simply not true. It is possible to access local files in flash when you add them to the trusted locations: http://www.macromedia.com/support/documentation/en/flashplayer/help/settings_manager04.html

i.e. Flowplayer is able to play local files.
