I updated a working server to 2.8.1 and now have the crossdomain problem. No amount of crossdomain mods could fix it. I found that when using the JWPlayer it worked fine. But when using the StrobeMediaPlayback it would play the files for about 1 second and then the screen would go black with a text message "We are unable to connect to the network. We apologize for the inconvenience."
Then I went to Adobe's Flash Media Playback Setup site. (www(dot)osmf.org/configurator/fmp/#) and copied in the exact url line from my browser page. Their configurator worked fine using the video from my remote site. Their code stripped all slashes from the section of the URL to the remote site and replaced them with http%3A%2F%2F. So why is it that the :// causes the problem?
Well to check further I replaced the code for swf file supplied by vshare instead to use the line given by Adobe. Now it works as it is supposed to work. So I think there is a defect or something in the file as supplied by vshare.
Here is the section from the player.inc file that has the correct line as supplied by Adobe.
( "http://fpdownload.adobe.com/strobe/FlashMediaPlayback.swf" <-------This is the corrected line
