    Internet Explorer compatibility?

    Hi Ladies and Gents


    I am having some browser compatibility issue with some code I am trying to use. I have no problem with most browsers other than IE. I have tried many variations but with little success. Here is the code:

    <center> <div id='flashContent'><object height='360' align='middle' width='555' type='application/x-shockwave-flash' id='shows' name='OoyalaPlayerNew' data='http://akamai.burton.com/2011/flash/ooyala/OoyalaPlayerNew.swf'><param name='quality' value='high'><param name='bgcolor' value='#ffffff'><param name='wmode' value='opaque'><param name='allowscriptaccess' value='always'><param name='allowfullscreen' value='true'><param name='flashvars' value='embedCode=RicjhyMToeCwt1M_LOZr5WU8QJeQmRa3&amp;layout=chromeless&amp;sendMailURL=http://theliftline.tv?page_id=1075&channelEmbedCode=null&videoEmbedCode=RicjhyMToeCwt1M_LOZr5WU8QJeQmRa3&am p;downloadURL=http://theliftline.tv?page_id=1075&amp;pageURL=http://theliftline.tv?page_id=133/'></object></div>

    If anyone has any ideas where I am going wrong I would greatly appreciate the info.

    Kind regards

    please use the CODE or PHP tags when posting raw code. It makes it a thousand times easier to read, and will get you results much faster.

    PHP Code:
    <center
    <
    div id='flashContent'>
    <
    object height='360' align='middle' width='555' type='application/x-shockwave-flash' id='shows' name='OoyalaPlayerNew' data='http://akamai.burton.com/2011/flash/ooyala/OoyalaPlayerNew.swf'>
    <
    param name='quality' value='high'>
    <
    param name='bgcolor' value='#ffffff'>
    <
    param name='wmode' value='opaque'>
    <
    param name='allowscriptaccess' value='always'>
    <
    param name='allowfullscreen' value='true'>
    <
    param name='flashvars' value='embedCode=RicjhyMToeCwt1M_LOZr5WU8QJeQmRa3&amp;layout=chromeless&amp;sendMailURL=http://theliftline.tv?page_id=1075&channelEmbedCode=null&videoEmbedCode=RicjhyMToeCwt1M_LOZr5WU8QJeQmRa3&am p;downloadURL=http://theliftline.tv?page_id=1075&amp;pageURL=http://theliftline.tv?page_id=133/'>
    </
    object>
    </
    div

    I E compatabiltiy

    Thanks for the reply. I do appreciate it and next time I will set the code out better! Basically, I am trying to make embedded video compatible with as many browsers as I can. I am having trouble with Internet Explorer 8 and the video does not work. Am I wasting my time trying to make it compatible with different browsers?
    Kind regards

    If your embed syntax is failing I suggest using swfobject or some other dynamic embed script. If the video is not encoded properly we will need more information.

    It looks like the swf is not embedding properly.

    I did thank you. I changed the HTML to the following:
    <center>
    <div id='flashContent'>
    <script type="text/javascript" src="http://theliftline.tv/wp-content/themes/wp-framework/library/media/js/swfobject/swfobject2.2.js"></script>
    <object height='360' align='middle' width='555' type='application/x-shockwave-flash' id='shows' name='OoyalaPlayerNew' data='http://akamai.burton.com/2011/flash/ooyala/OoyalaPlayerNew.swf'>
    <param name='quality' value='high'>
    <param name='bgcolor' value='#ffffff'>
    <param name='wmode' value='opaque'>
    <param name='allowscriptaccess' value='always'>
    <param name='allowfullscreen' value='true'>
    <param name='flashvars' value='embedCode=RicjhyMToeCwt1M_LOZr5WU8QJeQmRa3&layout=chromeless&sendMailURL=http://theliftline.tv?page_id=1075&channelEmbedCode=null&videoEmbedCode=RicjhyMToeCwt1M_LOZr5WU8QJeQmRa3&am p;downloadURL=http://theliftline.tv?page_id=1075&pageURL=http://theliftline.tv?page_id=133/'>
    </object>
    </div>

    But still no luck

    Note step 1.

    Try putting the minimum that can be embedded until you get the syntax correct.

    My guess is that the problem is in the
    Code:
    <param name='flashvars' value=
    That is a VERY complex variable. There is something in there that is causing problems. If you own or have permission to use that video, download it and reset the flashvars to just that one file. If you don't have permission to replay.. tough.
