[thelist] passing variables to a flash action

Does anybody know if the following is possible - I have found lots of
information about passing variables to Flash but not about doing exactly

I have a variable in a page that I want to send to a URL in flash along the
lines of
.. src='flashmovie.swf?var=<?echo $var?>"

and in the flash action, something like:
getURL=http://somesite.com/ + var + index.html

so that I do not have to change the movie every time the variable is

Can this work? and what would be the real syntax?
