FlashVars value always removed, GetHtml plugin

Reported by: mharrisonline Owned by: gogo
Priority: normal Milestone: 0.96
Component: Plugin_Other Version:
Severity: normal Keywords:


When I use the GetHtml? plugin or any other way to keep Flash code intact, any FlashVars?? added to the Flash object's param are stripped out. You can add them to the embed and they stay intact, but the param value for FlashVars?? always becomes "".

FlashVars? is the newer way to pass variables to a swf file. In the past, you had to add in the HTML that embeded the Flash movie in the page the filename, a question mark, and the variables that would be passed. For example,


This still works as far as I can tell with the GetHtml? plugin. A problem with putting variables in the path to the swf file is that each time a variable's value is changed, the browser won't pull the swf file from cache, it has to load the file fresh.

There is an explanation of FlashVars? at

I've tried to reproduce this problem in trunk (as well as older versions of the code, including 0.95 and r423) and everything seems to work correctly. I'm inserting an embed tag and setting the FlashVars? attribute. I've got GetHtml? turned on, and FlashVars? always retains the correct value and doesn't get set to "".

Am I missing something here?
