flash actionscript getURL not working when swf is not on the same domain

html page with embedded swf is on domain.com, 'test.html'

swf is on otherdomain.com, containing:

getURL('http://www.google.com');

the above action works in FF, but not any version of IE, when visiting domain.com/test.html

How to get it to work? Can this be done without recompiling the swf?

Hi,

I read the doc from adobe.

still not working in Ie..!

I'm using swfobject to embed the swf:

         var po = new SWFObject("http://www.otherdomain.com/swf/portal.swf", "portalswf", "100%", "60", "6", "#ffffff");
      po.addVariable('allowScriptAccess','always');
        po.write("portalPanel");


swfobject.js is also hosted on otherdomain.com

I've found the solution.

Don't use flash in the first place.
