Error: transcoding parameter ‘symbol’ is not supported by ‘’


if you’ve run on the Error: transcoding parameter 'symbol' is not supported by '' error recently, then you’re not alone.

I’ve updated my FlashDevelop recently (and with FD updated the Flex SDK – the offender) and one of my projects suddenly stopped publishing, the error was pointing to the Embed tag.

Remove the mime-type.

		[Embed(source = "../../../../../gd_logo.swf", 
		symbol="com.greladesign.library.logo.GrelaDesignLogo" )]
