The only security setting for Flash has nothing to do with the "local" 
domain. Rather, load from domains that are outside of the "toplevel movie's
domain" are denied by default, unless the *host* of the *external* movie
has a crossdomain.xml file saying something different.
For example, with the MM player, you play:
