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.
