I believe this bug is a regression, however I have no concrete evidence that it ever worked correctly.
Steps to reproduce:
- Deploy the alloy-showcase.
- Navigate to the alloy:audio General example.
If the bug still exists, the page will load everything except the audio player and the page will load infinitely.
If the bug is fixed, the player will load, and the player will play the audio file.
Note: This bug was discovered on Liferay 6.2 with IE8 in a Windows 7 VM guest on an OSX host (reproduced with Flash Player 10 and 22).
Note 2: The component works correctly on Firefox 3 + Flash 10 which also uses the fallback Flash player.
