Embed Code not working in internet explorer


I would really like some ...I would really like some help with this. The following code is to produce a player that plays two movies. This works in Firefox but only plays one movie in IE or Safari.

<!-- START: FILMTRAILER.COM FLASH PLAYER version 3.3 -->
<object width="400" height="225">
<param name="movie" value="http://www.player.filmtrailer.com/v3.3/player.swf?file=http://uk.player-feed.filmtrailer.com/v2.0/cinema/1511|1508/?channel_user_id=441100227-1"></param>
<embed type="application/x-shockwave-flash" src="http://www.player.filmtrailer.com/v3.3/player.swf?file=http://uk.player-feed.filmtrailer.com/v2.0/cinema/1511|1508/?channel_user_id=441100227-1&default_quality=xlarge&display_title=none&volume=35" allowFullScreen="true" width="400" height="225"></embed>
</object><br/> <a style="font-family: verdana; color:cccccc; font-size:
8pt; text-decoration:none" alt="filmtrailer.com" target="_blank" href="http://uk.filmtrailer.com/">Film Trailers by Filmtrailer.com</a>
<!-- END: Provided by filmtrailer.com -->

I would really appreciate some help.

Thanks

The problem is to do with the vertical bar as a separator.

One film works fine, but when I try to add another film using the vertical bar | as a separator it onlys plays one.

But it will play both in Firefox.

We have fixed this now. encoding our source according to UTF-8. I.e.

@my site (www.dieperbeeld.nl) single films don't work in IE either.

This is the code:
bc.. <div id="player1" style="text-align:left"><a href="http://www.macromedia.com/go/getflashplayer">Get the Flash Player</a> to see this player.</div>
<p> <script type="text/javascript" src="swfobject.js"></script><br />
<script type="text/javascript">
var s1 = new SWFObject("player.swf","ply","360","288","9");
s1.addParam("allowfullscreen","true");
s1.addParam("allowscriptaccess","always");
s1.addParam("flashvars","file=/wp-content/filmMarco.flv&fullscreen=true");
s1.write("player1");
</script></p>



and this is the code as I fixed it in Wordpress:
bc.. <div id="player1" style="text-align:left"><a href="http://www.macromedia.com/go/getflashplayer">Get the Flash Player</a> to see this player.</div>
<script type="text/javascript" src="swfobject.js"></script>
<script type="text/javascript">
var s1 = new SWFObject("player.swf","ply","360","288","9");
s1.addParam("allowfullscreen","true");
s1.addParam("allowscriptaccess","always");
s1.addParam("flashvars","file=/wp-content/filmMarco.flv&fullscreen=true");
s1.write("player1");
</script>


The players work fine in Firefox

Any suggestions?

thanks in advance,

@Jef,

You don't wrap the JavaScript code for the player in a paragraph element.bc.. <divid="player1"style="text-align:left">
<ahref="http://www.macromedia.com/go/getflashplayer">GettheFlashPlayer</a>toseethisplayer.
</div>
<scripttype="text/javascript"src="swfobject.js"></script>
<scripttype="text/javascript">
vars1=newSWFObject("player.swf","ply","360","288","9");
s1.addParam("allowfullscreen","true");
s1.addParam("allowscriptaccess","always");
s1.addParam("flashvars","file=/wp-content/filmMarco.flv");
s1.write("player1");
</script>

Your problem with Internet Explorer is probably related to the Adobe Flash Player. Go to Adobe's site and get the uninstaller. Uninstall, reboot, reinstall the Adobe Flash Player.

@ LefTy,

Thanks for your quick response.

A frind of mine just fixed it. Like this:

bc.. <!--start_raw-->
<script type="text/javascript" src="swfobject.js"></script>
<script type="text/javascript">
swfobject.registerObject("player4", "9.0.0");
</script>
<div>
<object classid="clsid:D27CDB6E-AE6D-11cf-96B8-444553540000" width="365" height="312" id="player4">
<param name="movie" value="player.swf">
<param name="allowfullscreen" value="true">
<param name="allowscriptaccess" value="always">
<param name="flashvars" value="file=/wp-content/filmMarco.flv">
<!--[if !IE]>-->
<object type="application/x-shockwave-flash" data="player.swf" width="365" height="312">
<param name="allowfullscreen" value="true">
<param name="allowscriptaccess" value="always">
<param name="flashvars" value="file=/wp-content/filmMarco.flv">
<!--<![endif]-->
<a href="http://www.adobe.com/go/getflashplayer">

</a>
<!--[if !IE]>-->
</object>
<!--<![endif]-->
</object>
</div>
<!--end_raw-->


This way the IE gets a different treatment.

Currently using JW player as a solution to implement streaming video from a third party. Works great except that the embed code generated after the video does not work.

<embed src='http://devlogos.com/sites/default/files/player-licensed-viral.swf' height='267' width='400' allowscriptaccess='always' allowfullscreen='true' flashvars='file=http%3A%2F%2Fdevlogos.com%2Flogosministries%2Fvideos%2Foldtestament%2Fbible_blasts_001a.flv&image=http%3A%2F%2Fsalemnet.vo.llnwd.net%2Fo29%2Flogosministries%2FBible%20Blasts%20Pictures%2FOne%20Stone.jpg&streamer=rtmp%3A%2F%2Fsalemnet.fcod.llnwd.net%2Fa3186%2Fo29%2F&plugins=viral-1d'/>

When I remove the escaped characters manually the embed code works -

<embed src='http://www.devlogos.com/sites/default/files/player-licensed-viral.swf' height='267' width='400' allowscriptaccess='always' allowfullscreen='true' flashvars='image=http://salemnet.vo.llnwd.net/o29/logosministries/Bible Blasts Pictures/Naked People.jpg&streamer=rtmp://salemnet.fcod.llnwd.net/a3186/o29/&file=logosministries/videos/specialtopics/bible_blasts_015.flv&volume=100&plugins=viral-1d'/></embed>

Any suggestions on getting JW player to generate the correct code automatically would be very appreciated.

These two embed codes aren't remotely the same - they don't reference the same file, and the second has a streamer, while the first doesn't.

How are you generating the first embed code from the second?

Also is there a reason why IE will show the video on one occasion then on the next no video just audio?

MP4 box is a command line tool that you use to process your MP4 files once. It doesn't go in any code for the player.

Peter – You will need embed and object tags if you want the player to work in all browsers, that is just how it different web browsers work. Do you have a link to where you are experiencing the error?

Ok, I am also having issues with the viral player. People have complained that the embed code available for them to put on their sites is not working in IE. I have tested and its not. I need to find the solution for this ASAP.

I cannot find anything about this anywhere on the boards except this thread which is only lightly talked about which I find amazing that this hasn't been a big issue for others.

Is the escaped characters causing the IE issue and if so how to resolve it?

Honestly, I am more than a little miffed that this is an issue. Thank you in advance for any help in the right direction.
