The confusion may be due to the fact that using Flash to access cross-domain http:// URLs requires that the application itself be served from an http:// URL, not a file:// one. Since most web devs test locally, this might catch them off guard. You can run a local web server of any kind (Tape is just a web server) to serve the files from a local http:// URL.

OS X has a suitable web server built in, but windows does not.
