This 3D cube uses thumbnail images from my Flickr account. The image urls are hard coded in the object inclusion tag, as a "query string" attached to the FlickrSpinnr.swf.
The thumbnail images are fetched from Flickr using a PHP proxy. The proxy is neccessary to break out of the Flash security sand box, which doesn't allow media from another server to be manipulated. In this case we have to convert the JPEGs to bitmaps, to be able to deform them as the coube rotates.
I have also added a default image, which resides in the internal library of the Flash Movie ( SWF ).
The default image is pasted to all cube faces, while the images are fetched from Flickr.
If there is not enough Flickr images to fill the cube faces, some pages will show the default image, making the cube complete
