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>

I would really appreciate some help.

Thanks

Chris

me too, help!!!!

This is explorer 7 & 8. Any help out there?

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:

<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:

<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

@Jef,

You don't wrap the JavaScript code for the player in a paragraph element.

<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");
      s1.write("player1");
</script>

The flashvar fullscreen is read-only, so I removed it from your code.

Please review the v4.x player supported flashvars here:

      http://developer.longtailvideo.com/trac/wiki/FlashVars#Behaviour

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:

<!--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">
<img src="http://www.adobe.com/images/shared/download_buttons/get_flash_player.gif" alt="Get Adobe Flash player">
</a>
<!--[if !IE]>-->
</object>
<!--<![endif]-->
</object>
</div>
<!--end_raw-->

This way the IE gets a different treatment.

Regards,

Jef

The conditional code is not necessary, but if it works, good luck!

doesn't this work without javascript so it works on myspace too?

Will you help me get this to play in IE?

<embed src="player.swf" width="432" height="240" loop="false" bgcolor="undefined" type="application/x-shockwave-flash" pluginspage="http://www.macromedia.com/go/getflashplayer" allowscriptaccess="always" allowfullscreen="true" flashvars="file=videos/customers_speak/rto_testimonial.flv&image=videos/customers_speak/wills.jpg&controlbar=over" play="false"/>

The Jef one worked perfect!, thanks!

This is the code for embedding the flash player in my html file. i have a player.js file inplace. it works fine in safari and firefox but dosent work in IE .Any help is appreciable.....

thank you

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?

I cant get any of the codes below to work in IE can someone please help. I have tried all combinations of the embed code and still cant get anything to work in IE

<script type='text/javascript' src='swfobject.js'></script>

<div id='mediaspace'>This text will be replaced</div>

<script type='text/javascript'>
var so = new SWFObject('http://complimentssalonandspa.com/files/player-viral.swf','mpl','634','357','9');
so.addParam('allowfullscreen','true');
so.addParam('allowscriptaccess','always');
so.addParam('wmode','opaque');
so.addVariable('file','http://complimentssalonandspa.com//files/playlist/Compliments-Homepage-Intro.mp4');
so.addVariable('controlbar','none');
so.addVariable('autostart','true');
so.write('mediaspace');
</script>

Or

<object classid='clsid:D27CDB6E-AE6D-11cf-96B8-444553540000' width='634' height='357' id='single1' name='single1'>

<param name='wmode' value='transparent'>
<param name='flashvars' value='file=http://complimentssalonandspa.com//files/playlist/Compliments-Homepage-Intro.mp4&controlbar=none&autostart=true'>
<embed
type='application/x-shockwave-flash'
id='single2'
name='single2'
src='http://complimentssalonandspa.com/files/player-viral.swf'
width='634'
height='357'

allowfullscreen='true'
wmode='transparent'
flashvars='file=http://complimentssalonandspa.com//files/playlist/Compliments-Homepage-Intro.mp4&controlbar=none&autostart=true'
/>
</object>

 
Works perfectly for me:

<script src="http://complimentssalonandspa.com/files/swfobject.js"></script>

<div id="mediaspace"><a href="http://www.adobe.com/shockwave/download/download.cgi?P1_Prod_Version=ShockwaveFlash">Get the Adobe Flash Player to see this video.</a></div>

<script type="text/javascript">
  var so = new SWFObject('http://complimentssalonandspa.com/files/player-viral.swf', 'mpl', '634', '357', '9.0.124');
      so.addParam('allowscriptaccess',   'always');
      so.addParam('allowfullscreen',     'true');
      so.addVariable('file',             'http://complimentssalonandspa.com//files/playlist/Compliments-Homepage-Intro.mp4');
      so.addVariable('controlbar',       'none');
      so.addVariable('autostart',        'true');
      so.write('mediaspace');
</script>

You should use:MP4Box -inter 0.5 Compliments-Homepage-Intro.mp4to interleave the boxes, so the video file starts quickly.

Thanks for you help and quick response

Can you please expand on your comment?

Where in the code should I place
MP4Box -inter 0.5 Compliments-Homepage-Intro.mp4

Thanks

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.

Hi I want to embed a page in a wordpress and it is working in Chrome but not in explorer, the code I'm using is:

<object width="920" height="950"><param name="search" value="http://www.realtysoft.com/idx/122ada4e8290a3eb0d586b95d12b055d"></param><param name="allowFullScreen" value="true"></param><param name="allowscriptaccess" value="always"></param><embed src="http://www.realtysoft.com/idx/122ada4e8290a3eb0d586b95d12b055d" type="" allowscriptaccess="always" allowfullscreen="true" width="920" height="950"></embed></object>

Please help!

Can you provide a link to where you are running this?

Terrible! You guys should get this fixed. It's a seriously annoying error that should implement the solution the same in all browsers not just Mozilla type.

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?

Hi the flex gallery on this page is giving me a lot of troubles.

I have read all your conversation. I cannot import external script and also with SWF objects doens't work on IE bastard

http://cgi.ebay.de/ws/eBayISAPI.dll?ViewItem&item=370355245882

The strange things is that if I click with mouse ( left click on gallery ) and then I push TAB button it starts to work...

Any IDea?

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.

Mark - Can you provide a link to where you are running this?

Thanks Jef,
your way worked for me.
