I'm currently working on a scraper that exports to a disk. The site has videos on it that play in a lightbox with mediaelementplayer. I'm defaulting everything to flash, because for some reason the auto HTML5 detection isn't working properly.

Anyway, I've got the export down, but when I go to try and play the video, I keep getting errors from my Network console that the .swf file can't be found. The files are being converted to a "file:///C:/..." through the javascript, and when navigate to the swf through my browser, I can see that it exists.

Is there something going on with the <embed> tag that I'm not aware of when it comes to running flash files locally?
