RSS - problem with resources
« on: April 14, 2011, 02:25:58 AM »
I already reported this problem, but it seams that not too many people realize full potential of RSS feeds. I suppose that otherwise you would already do something to fix your RSS players (both normal and custom).

In short, there is a big problem with resources (pictures). Some RSS feeds with resources are presented correctly, sometimes resources are not visible at all. Also, the same RSS feed doesn't look the same in desktop player and in web preview player (Firefox browser). Usually, web player works better (!), resources are presented correctly, but sometimes it doubles resource both in resource and in descrption field (you have two pictures).
My choice of RSS feeds is limited by local language, so I have big problem finding RSS feed with resources, which will be correctly interpreted in desktop player.

Can you please do something about it?

I know it may sound strange, but the bug is actually not ours but Adobe's since we have the same code running in AIR and Web. It' s a bug related to swf loader. Now, we hear that the issue has a workaround in the new Flex SDK 4.5 which is due to release later this summer. Once we move to 4.5 it should get resolved, until it does it's best to use RSS with text only.
Always glad to help,
