Join Todd Perkins for an in-depth discussion in this video Viewing the Flickr API, part of ActionScript 3.0: Working with XML.
In this chapter we are going to be using Flash to grab data…from Flickr.com generate XML data and display images from Flickr.com in Flash.…We are actually not going to use any PHP this time.…The reason we don't have to use PHP is because Flickr.com has something called a cross-domain policy file…that enables any other domain to access data from Flickr.com.…So we don't need to use PHP to grab the XML because Flickr is allowing everybody…to grab its data with this cross-domain policy file.…
Now if you want to know more information about cross-domain policy files you can search cross-domain policy file…in Flash help or you can simply do a web search.…So before we start using the Flickr API I want to talk about how it works and what you can do if you want to do a little bit more…than what we are going to do in this chapter.…The way that the Flickr API works is we essentially send a request to Flickr and Flickr takes that request…and generates XML data which we can use in Flash, it's simply an RSS feed and process it just like any other RSS feed…
