    External Flv Player does not show up in internet explore

    Hi all, Have anyone stumble onto this problem, I cant seem to get my external flv player to show up in internet explore, I have a gallery page in my portfolio with links to some external flv videos, by clicking on these links load an external flv player that was setup by use of javascript, which then load these videos. It works fine in firefox but will not show up in IE. What you will see is a blank white box where the player would be and its dimensions. Can anyone guide me on what to do for it to display in internet explore.
    Thanks for all the help

    There was a security update to IE that stopped flash from automatically showing and meant the user had to click on it before it works. Try using swfobject (do a search) it's a piece of javascript that can overcome this.
