Default ExternalInterface breaks swf

I have a weird problem here in which my mxml compiles fine but when I load it in the webpage all it shows is a black box....

I have isolated the cause to be line 46 which is
ActionScript Code:

Can't seem to find anybody on Google who has the same issue....

Here is my entire script:

ActionScript Code:
<?xml version="1.0" encoding="utf-8"?> <mx:Application xmlns:mx="[...]"     layout="absolute" usePreloader="false"     applicationComplete="init()"     backgroundColor="#000000"     backgroundAlpha="1">         <!-- Load styles -->         <mx:Script>             // Imports         import flash.external.ExternalInterface;         import mx.core.FlexGlobals;          // Important variables             private var nc:NetConnection; // net connection             private var stream:NetStream; // net stream             private var video:Video;      // video             private var meta:Object;      // meta data                         // This succker is loaded.

Thanks for any help you can give me.

Without that line everything works great just without the access via javascript.

Never mind. Accidentally opened the file through the explorer instead of the localhost.... It works.
