Help requested for => Scaleform Warning: Actionscript version mismatch
I have the following actionscript 3.0 code that runs fine in Flash development environment.
This permits me to run a swf movieclip from within an swf.
var movieLoader:Loader = new Loader();
var movieURL:URLRequest = new URLRequest("mymovie.swf");
BTW... In the flash environment, I have imported the mymovie.swf directly into the stage, so it is not an external file.
But when I test the code in the Scaleform Launcher see the error message:
Warning: Failed loading SWF "mymovie.swf": Actionscript version mismatch
However when I searched through the Scaleform Flash Support Overview (PDF document), it indicates that URLRequest is supported.
Perhaps I'm missing something here? But more importantly... What is a viable workaround for the code I'm trying to implement. Any suggestions are sincerely appreciated!!!

Hmm - not sure about that one. Could be that one is AS2 and one is AS3?
Thanks Mr. Doyle for your response. I did a test... The scaleform player only complains about the 4th line. Meaning, there is no warning/error thrown if the 4th (last) line is commented out in the about simple actionscript. This is all AS3 code, not AS2.
A bit more research shows there are many types of "load" affiliations however. One tagged to Loader, ProLoader, RSInfo, ScrollPanel, Sound, FileReference, HTMLLoader, and FLVPlayback. The latter FLVPlayback and perhaps others are not supported in Scaleform. As I first tried to play an FLV file, but Scaleform came right back with an error saying "feature not supported"... Hence why I am trying the SWF route now. Not sure... But perhaps Scaleform folks overlooked something here? This code really should work but does not. Guess I can try to ping them directly and see what they say...
Ah I see. Yes, there are some things Scaleform does not support. FLV playback and HTMLLoader are both included in that list.
Well... I did talk to Scaleform Autodesk folks. They said...
Scaleform already comes bundled with the UDK (Unreal Development Kit) free of charge. For all of your questions/issues with the UDK please contact Epic as they maintain and support all aspects including the Scaleform integration.
So this means I'm simply stuck pursuing the approach I'm currently taking. Best to start a new thread (with a specific and clear problem statement), that explains what I'm trying to do. Perhaps you or someone else can help me with this movie implementation from there? Thanks...
