Gaining Flashback

I have an instant or sorcery with X in its mana cost in my graveyard, and an effect says something like "Instants and sorceries in your graveyard have flashback.  The flashback cost is equal to its mana cost."  Can I pay for X like I would when I cast the spell from my hand, or is this one of those instances where X is considered 0?

You may cast the spell and pay for X of your choice.

How to autocard [card]Otaria[/card] = Otaria
In the Otaria Gatherer page, look at the bottom for Rulings and "+ Display Rulings."
10/1/2009 If you use the flashback ability granted by Otaria to cast a card with X in its mana cost from your graveyard, you choose the value of X as you cast it. You'll still have to pay that X.
