The issue of local Flash Security comes up so often, we thought a post describing the issue and how you can configure your local PC would be valuable to our readers.
In Adobe Flash Player 9 and later, certain types of local content are restricted. Adobe put this in placed as a protection for accessing data on your computer and sending it to the Internet without your knowledge or consent. This often causes Flash movies to not display on your local computer in a web browser, such as when you are creating Adobe Captivate or Flash movies. The security issue does NOT affect end-users from viewing your Flash movies when they are posted on a web server and accessed in a web browser using “http:” addresses.
You will need to edit your security settings for Flash on your local computer via the “Flash Player Global Security Settings.” You can Google “flash global security” or visit Adobe’s official Flash Player Settings Manager website for more information.
Follow these steps to adjust your Flash Player Global Security Settings:
We suggest adjusting the security settings for the ‘My Documents’ folder. This way, you can adjust the security once and each Flash project published within My Documents will not require a security adjustment.
