Description

Hello!

Thanks for great macro! Unfortunately it doesn't work in Internet Explorer 6 which is only our official corporate browser. When I click at black box, IE suggest to download flv file. In Firefox 3.5 and Chrome it works well. See generated HTML below.

<script>
$(function() {
$("a.flowplayer").flowembed("/trac/chrome/movie/swf/FlowPlayerDark.swf",  {initialScale:'scale'});
             });
</script>
<a class="flowplayer" style="width: 800px; border: none; clear: both; margin: 0 auto; display: block; height: 600px;" href="/trac/raw-attachment/wiki/TracScreencasts/Login/screencast1_en.flv"><img src="/trac/chrome/movie/img/black.jpg" style="width: 800px; border: none; clear: both; margin: 0 auto; display: block; height: 600px;"/></a>

I am sorry but the world has moved on from IE6, see http://www.stopie.com/ This is not a bug in the plugin it is a bug in your corporation. They have to upgrade, period.

Thanks for great idea about getting rid of IE6, it really made help for me. The reason was IE6 security setting which prevented execution of flash content on the page - now it works for me.

Don't be too happy too quick. If you plan to embed YouTube movies it still wouldn't work, since YouTube is dropping IE6. http://www.techcrunch.com/2009/07/14/youtube-will-be-next-to-kiss-ie6-support-goodbye/
