Internet Explorer not working with JW Player and Cloudfront
In the past few months, internet explorer stopped working for streaming videos from my AWS cloud-front distribution.
I originally setup everything following this document: http://aws.amazon.com/articles/4101
Chrome and Firefox work like a champ and I have searched all over to figure this out, but have had no luck. IE 9 used to work on my site but it stopped working sometime in February.
IE 8 has never worked.
Here is a link to my site: http://www.smattie.com/2012/02/22/video-aws-fault-tolerance-strategies/
Here is my code:
<div id="mediaspace">The information provided in this video is meant as a tutorial. It is not the final word on security or setup for your particular case. In Simpler terms: USE at your own risk. That said, I hope it helps.</div>
<!--Where it says smattievids/player.swf is where you specify the player that you uploaded in step 2b-->
var so = new jwplayer('http://s3.amazonaws.com/smattiecdn/player.swf','mpl','470','290','9');
<!--This next line is where you specify your video file (uploaded in step 2c). For .mp4 files, you must write it as below ('mp4:awsft'), *without* the .mp4 extension. For .flv files, you simply write the name of the file ('YOUR_VIDEO_FILE') -->
<!--This next line is where you point to your streaming distribution on cloudfront (done in step 3 above). NOTE: you *MUST* add "/cfx/st/" for it to work. This specifies it is a cloudfront object (cfx) and that it is to be streamed (st). This is the URL of the streaming distribution--it ends with .cloudfront.net. In the example above, I would write: 'rtmp://sXXXXXXXXXX.cloudfront.net/cfx/st/'
*IMPORTANT NOTE*: When you use the EC2Config service to run sysprep, it will *reset* the password. In order to obtain this new password, please right click your instance in the AWS Management console and select *Get Windows password.*
