OK well something weird is a foot, I just re-installed Windows and I'm trying to test a crossdomain.xml which sets what sites/domains/ip can access flvs or flash files. For some reason, I seem to be able to bypass crossdomain.xml and access flvs on another server regardless of whether the crossdomain.xml allows it or not. I've tried it in Firefox, IE and Opera - all seem to bypass it.
Is it just me or does Flash v9.0 (I have CS 3 installed) bypass crossdomain restrictions? Also can anyone give me a test site so that I can see if it's a problem on my end, or just a coincidence?
Hopefully you understand what I'm saying..I'm going out of mind trying to understand this.
Here's an example:
Using youtube as an example which has a set restrictive crossdomain.xml that includes only sites hosted on youtube to access flvs directly.
