Flash embedding, theme download, crash RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi,

    First I want to say, great software!
    However, I noticed a problem.
    If the theme has embedded a flash player from ustream.tv, WLW will crash when previewing.
    If replacing the local url with the online url for the embedded flash in the downloaded template files, it doesn't crash.

    Why even download embedded flash files?

  • We do download all the content so offline previewing works.  Have you tried upgrading your version of Flash.  This is most likely a problem that causes Flash tro crash, which causes IE to crash, which then finally causes WLW to crash.

  •  But still, very rarely flash elements works offline, since they load online urls.
    At least make it optional.

    Latest flash does not solve the issue.
