Ooyala.com Flash Player fails to load in published WP Post pages being views in Internet Explorer (IE7)
|Reported by:||bigaqua||Owned by:|
There are issues getting flash videos served by ooyala.com flash player embedded in WP (.org install) to play in all browsers. This may related to a more global issue with embedding some versions of flash players directly inside Wordpress posts. The issue is most pronounced with in IE7 (maybe IE6 too). Videos DO play in Firefox (all recent versions) on both windows and mac and Safari.
Two behaviors have been noted:
- player fails to load (this issue is most pronounced in Internet Explorer)
2 player preview image fails to load but the player still functions (this issue occurs randomly in all browsers tested)
Example page with the ooyala video embedded in a post is at:
(this sample embed is in a WP 2.6 install)
Note: To eliminate the possibility of plugin or theme variables or outdated WP version, I have a staging site where I have upgraded to 2.6.1, where all plugins are turned off and where the standard "classic" theme is running. The same IE player loading problem still persists. Please contact me directly if you need access to this staging area for testing.
