I have a situation where i want to pass to a flash script a text string from a PHP call.
The parameter is an absolute URL of an image (out of a DB library of client products).
I do not want to divulge the location of the image, in order to make it as obfuscated as possible for a casual user not to be able to easily SAVE-AS the jpg file. (I realize that Print-Screen can capture images, but that's beside the point...)
If i give Flash an MD5 (or otherwise) encoded parameter, what is the call/syntax within flash to DECODE the string given the KEY (which would be hardcoded, or we could put in a file somewhere as a config variable)
var so = new SWFObject("movie.swf", "mymovie", "400", "200", "8", "#336699");
so.addVariable("param1", "xyzzy"); // where xyzzy has been MD5-encoded
