Hi there! I googled around a lot and searched the forum for a few hours before posting this thread, but to no avail.

I have a first webpage (parent) that, upon a button press, opens a new window (child) and passes some variables to it. I have successfully passed the variables and made this alert-popup on the child webpage to ensure the variables are being passed, but I can't figure out how to pass the variables from the javascript to the html.

The following is relevant code from the parent website:

var w = window.open("child website");

var link1 = "src=http%3A%2F%2F143.215.99.158%3A1935%2Fvod%2Fmp4%3Asample.mp4%2Fmanifest.f4m%3Fwowzaplaystart%3D3 0000%26wowzaplayduration%3D40000&poster=http%3A%2F%2Fosmf.org%2Fimages%2Fposter_cathy_fmp.jpg";

var link2 = "src=http%3A%2F%2F143.215.99.158%3A1935%2Fvod%2Fmp4%3Asample.mp4%2Fmanifest.f4m%3Fwowzaplaystart%3D3 0000%26wowzaplayduration%3D40000&poster=http%3A%2F%2Fosmf.org%2Fimages%2Fposter_cathy_fmp.jpg";

w.msStart = msStart;
w.msDuration = msDuration;
w.link1 = link1;
w.link2 = link2;


this is the child code:
function display_alert()

alert("link1: " + link1 + " link2: " + link2);
/////////////this script bit here is literally just for me to make sure the variables are being transferred from the parent to child

<body onload='display_alert()'>
//so the alert comes up on child loading, again just for me to ensure variables are being transferred.

<object width="600" height="409"> <param name="movie" value="http://fpdownload.adobe.com/strobe/FlashMediaPlayback_101.swf"></param><param name="flashvars" value=link1></param><param name="allowFullScreen" value="true"></param><param name="allowscriptaccess" value="always"></param><embed src="http://fpdownload.adobe.com/strobe/FlashMediaPlayback_101.swf" type="application/x-shockwave-flash" allowscriptaccess="always" allowfullscreen="true" width="600" height="409" flashvars=link2></embed></object></body>

//so this bit here is calling an osmf flash player instance. My intention is to use the link1 and link2 variables transferred from the parent to the child window where I have bolded the words link1 and link2. I've tried a couple things to make this work, without luck
