I apologize in advance, as this may be more of a Flash question than a Watchout question, but it does seem to be isolated to using an SWF in the DIS.
I have an SWF file that parses a JSON file (local on the machine) and displays text. It's a brute-force way of showing tweets on screen; upstream of me the JSON will be edited by a moderation system that actually accesses the web. It takes a couple of parameters to identify the JSON file and the tweet ID.
When I use this SWF in a web browser via an HTML doc, it works great. As expected. When I do the same thing via the DIS, it's like it can't find the JSON files. It simply shows the generic text field data, not pulling any text from the JSON files. I've moved file locations around, adjusted the trusted settings in the Flash control panel, etc. Nothing seems to get it going.
So my question is, are there any limitations / caveats / peculiarities to the way the DIS would handle a SWF looking for / reading a local file vs how a web browser (Firefox on this PC) would handle ti?
p.s. I know my DIS works correctly, since I'm using the same machine to pull photos in other areas of my timeline. It does load the SWF correctly, just doesn't display the text.
