Hi, Would you please change the Flash policy file to allow Flex / Flash applications to access this API. All it needs is to change http://wherein.yahooapis.com/crossdomain.xml to be similar to crossdomain.xml in Flickr (http://api.flickr.com/crossdomain.xml) or Yahoo Map (http://local.yahooapis.com/crossdomain.xml). The current crossdomain.xml on PlaceMaker only allow Flash hosted on Yahoo servers to access the API.
This is a great product. People were talking about PlaceMaker in WhereCamp on Saturday. I immediately want to try hacking up something. I saw there is no Actionscript library yet. Then I said, no problem, I can create one. However, I was quite bummed when I found out that the policy file only allow Yahoo hosted Flash to access the API.
