Embedding external assets

Strange, strange.

If you’ve embedded a Flash object inside a html page, and the Flash object loads external assets(images, SWFs, audio), the flash object locates the assets relative to the location of the html file and NOT relative to the swf file.

However, if you’re playing an FLV file using progressive download, the FLV is located relative to the SWF file and NOT relative to the html file.

I’ve actually been aware of this for a few years but thought that they’d resolve its inconsistency with one of the latest iterations of Flash. but no.
