I was just working on some strange Flowplayer bug, it just wouldn’t work in IE8.
The problem is just the Flash player in IE. If you upgrade to Flash player 10, it works.
How do you require Flash player 10 in Flowplayer?
Open up your flowplayer*.js file (whichever version you are currently using, you can even modified the minified version), for me this is:
Do a search for “9,0” and replace it with “10,0“. That will force the browser to require version 10, and prompt users to install it if they are missing it.
It does insert a few annoying popups, “Do you want to install Flash player 10?”, but it fixes the problem.
