In IE the video loads, however it loads and plays at a frame rate of about 1 fps! ...not a great user experience.
I've Googled extensively looking for a solution or even someone with the same problem, but no luck. I spoke to another developer mate who said he's never seen it before. I really don't know where to start with this one.
We've tested on several machines (Mac and PC) across FF2, FF3, Safari, IE6 and IE7 and Chrome. So at this rate I have to rule out a client side issue.
The only thing out of the ordinary is that we've added some action script that sets an LSO to auto play the video on first view only, but as this is working fine in all other browsers and the problem still occurs when manually playing the video, I suspect that this is not the cause of the issue.
I don't know exactly what the problem is but I'll offer a few observations.

I'm not so sure about that. Directly downloading the video player from http://www.connecttherapy.com/wp-con...eo-player2.swf
plays fine in IE7. It doesnít autoplay but thereís no pausing problem. So it should be easy enough to comment out the LSO code and test. If things work well, then youíve isolated the problem.
The second thing that caught my eye was the stuttering playback in IE, what you describe as playing at 1fps. To me, it looks more like the video is actually pausing, then starting again, not just playing at a slow frame rate. Is it possible that itís looping through that code and pausing, then playing, then pausing??
I have no idea why it would happen but Iím wondering if it has anything to do with
Is this actual seconds or is it milliseconds? Because it seems that thatís about the play/pause time when viewed in IE. It would be easy enough to change that to 25000 or something and see if it affects playback in any way.
Are you able to get the ďtraceĒ statements to come out? And things look correct?
