Question liveconnect

OK a while back there was a big fuss about Netscape and Mozilla not supporting pluggin scripting. Some people blamed Netscapes API and some people blamed Macromedia for not making the flash pluggin compatible with how Netscape dealt with pluggin scripting.

I've recently revisited javascript flash methods in a current project and guess what.... It works in IE but not in NN6.2 or Mozilla. The documentation on mozilla.org says that they both should work now as long as you has the Flash pluggin at v6 r40 or above installed (I have v6.0.79).

Im just trying to pass a variable to flash using the JS setVariable method. Has any one tried anything like this and had it working in Mozilla/NN recently? Is there a definative answer?

short and to the point.

I assume that "yes" is the answer and not an answer saying that there is an answer, but not giving one...

assuming that the above IS true then thanks, thats what I needed to know - time to go back to and have a look at my code

Upon further reading I have found the following.

Liveconnect and Javascript flash methods work normally in IE4+ and and NN4.

It does not work in NN6.0/6.1

It will work in NN6.2 and above and Mozilla 0.9.2 and higher, but only if you follow the instructions here

This isnt for the faint hearted though as it involves dipping into editing mozilla's and the pluggins code and compiling them using an XPCOM compatibale compiler.

Communication between the browser and Flash is much more robust and reliable using a third party script I'd say.
