I am developing this site one directory above the htdocs root of the live
site. Normally this isn't a problem since I believe in relative links, but
my Flash troubles arise from the use of another handy extension: RealURL!
In the root TypoScript template I setup config.baseURL = [root] which
effectively made all of my links absolute.
Right-clicking on the Flash apps only revealed "could not load movie". I
only caught on because of one image link that is hard-coded in my HTML
template. The link was broken and I was able to see that the source was
relative to the real root of the site and not the dev/ folder I created for
testing. Judge not the Typo engine lest ye be judged yourself!
