Embedded videos do not play on Explorer?

May 23, 2009 2:06 PM

I have a site on a staging server located at http://www.wwwlan.com/CLT_11.

It's a site for martial art videos. I'm using the CS3 version of Dreamweaver.

I have embedded videos from Youtube and they work perfectly in Firefox, Netscape, Opera, Safari, but not Explorer.

When the pages were opened, I got prompts from dreamweaver to add a patch for Explorer and clicked OK.

Was this a mistake. What am I missing?

Thanks,

LaoTzu1

    Try changing this:

     

    <div id="video"><script type="text/javascript">
    AC_AX_RunContent( 'width','425','height','344','src','http://www.youtube.com/v/XUi7PgUgH2I&hl=en&fs=1','type','application/x-shockwave-flash','allowscriptaccess','always','allowfullscreen','true','movie','http://www.youtube.com/v/XUi7PgUgH2I&hl=en&fs=1' ); //end AC code
    </script><noscript><object width="425" height="344"><param name="movie" value="http://www.youtube.com/v/XUi7PgUgH2I&hl=en&fs=1"></param><param name="allowFullScreen" value="true"></param><param name="allowscriptaccess" value="always"></param><embed src="http://www.youtube.com/v/XUi7PgUgH2I&hl=en&fs=1" type="application/x-shockwave-flash" allowscriptaccess="always" allowfullscreen="true" width="425" height="344"></embed></object></noscript></div>

     

    to this:

     

    <div id="video">
      <object width="425" height="344"><param name="movie" value="http://www.youtube.com/v/XUi7PgUgH2I&hl=en&fs=1"></param><param name="allowFullScreen" value="true"></param><param name="allowscriptaccess" value="always"></param><embed src="http://www.youtube.com/v/XUi7PgUgH2I&hl=en&fs=1" type="application/x-shockwave-flash" allowscriptaccess="always" allowfullscreen="true" width="425" height="344"></embed></object>
    </div>

    Are you sure? It worked for me in IE7 and FF 3.0.10.

     

    Your page still has the same code as far as I can tell (and it has 10 closing </div> tags for 9 opening <div> tags).

    didn't mean to be glib.

    No problem. I didn't take it that way.

     

    IE only goes up to 5.2.3 for mac so it's difficult to test.

     

    No doubt. I don't think anybody outside developers use IE on Macs anymore. And that version is sooooo old. This particular problem would not be one where browsershots.org would be of any help, either. I don't have a Mac, but there are a number of ways to run various Windows versions of IE on a Mac. Not sure which to recommend, but google or altavista.com come up with lots of hits for ie on mac.

     

    Just hang in there, we'll get you there. Basically, all I did was to replace your code with the exact copy/paste as supplied by Youtube. For some reason, there was some DW-specific code in your page.

    Use this page for validating CSS (W3C is the authority to trust)
    http://jigsaw.w3.org/css-validator/

     

    Use this page to validate HTML
    http://validator.w3.org

    You should be able to safely ignore the errors in the Youtube code for this page.

     

    Please read my reply again. http://forums.adobe.com/message/1985242#1985242 I did not delete your div, but I replaced it. (Lines 109-111).

     

    The extra closing </div> tag you have is on line 118 (at least that's where it was yesterday).

     

    Try replacing everything from your video div to the bottom of the page with this:

          <div id="video">
          <object width="425" height="344"><param name="movie" value="http://www.youtube.com/v/XUi7PgUgH2I&hl=en&fs=1"></param><param name="allowFullScreen" value="true"></param><param name="allowscriptaccess" value="always"></param><embed src="http://www.youtube.com/v/XUi7PgUgH2I&hl=en&fs=1" type="application/x-shockwave-flash" allowscriptaccess="always" allowfullscreen="true" width="425" height="344"></embed></object>
          </div>
          <p align="center" class="style18">Unsolicted Customer Comments</p>
          <p><span class="style11">&quot;China's Living Treasures is the best tape series on martial arts and on one of China's greatest contributions to the world and the human race. Thank you for your dilligent efforts in this regards.&quot; - </span><span class="style13">D.H. - Virginia<br /></span>
            <span class="style11">&quot;Thank you very much for your prompt response and processing of the order. I've never been dissapointed when dealing with China's Living Treasures videos, Thanks again and keep up the good quality&quot; - </span><span class="style13">H.M. - Ohio.<br /></span>
          <span class="style11">&quot;The taiji fundamentals videos I received recently are great!&quot; - </span><span class="style13">V.B. - Vermont</span></p>
            <p><span class="style11">&quot;Great resource!&quot;</span><span class="style13"> K.K - California</span><br /></p>
    
            <div class="style2" id="footer1">
              <div align="center">copyright 1985-2009 - One Hand Video - all rights reserved</div>
            </div>
          <!-- end #mainContent --></div>
    
        <!-- end #container --></div>
        <script type="text/javascript">
          <!--
          var MenuBar1 = new Spry.Widget.MenuBar("MenuBar1", {imgDown:"SpryAssets/SpryMenuBarDownHover.gif", imgRight:"SpryAssets/SpryMenuBarRightHover.gif"});
          //-->
        </script>
      </body>
    </html>

    Sorry. I forgot to answer your questions.

     

    I didn't change the code yet.

    That explains why nothing has improved

    Are you able to view it in IE7 without the change?

    No. I see what your wife sees.

    What version of IE are you running?

     

    IE 7.0.5730.11 running on Win XP Pro SP3.

    I do like the text below, but I personally would use left-justified text on your home page - as you have for the other pages I visited. Just a personal preference, though.

     

    It may be a little late (looks like you've either finished or made good head way), but I would probably use a database, then use one or more dynamic pages. A database would make it easier to add/delete titles and, if done properly, you wouldn't even need to edit some pages, like the Store page. The code would dynamically pull information from the database to display on the pages. It would also be used to provide dynamic links/pages for the More Info on the store page.

     

    Thanks for the offer, but as interesting as I find the subject, it would likely be wasted on me.

     

    Oh. I just noticed that View Cart and Add to Cart are broken on some of your pages - including the store.

    I don't have the technical knowledge to do the dynamic data base yet. I only just learned this program in the last 2 months and I'm working by myself, no IT dept. I was a GoLive devotee, even when it was Cyberstudio(before they were bought by Adobe.) I'm coming from a graphic background, no tech side. It's been a difficult transition for me to have to deal with so much code work. It's sinking in VERY slowly. I felt forced to learn Dreamweaver because of Adobe's decision to yank golive.

     

    Good for you, Lao! You will not regret learning the technology used by the Web rather than just the tools themselves. HTML and CSS are what define a Web page, not GoLive or Dreamweaver.

     

    What does the caveat after your name mean by"not accurate?--Just curious.

     

    The email system is a bit broken in this system so far. Especially in some forums where a different kind of code is posted. And email replies with code in them are seriously broken. They are working on improvements, but meantime I am including that in my sig - specifically to help counter the footer included in the email notifications.

     

    Additionally, if I edit a message in the Web interface, the edited message does not get re-sent via email.
