I also have Adobe's latest flash player.
And it works fine in IE.
Never mind on this I figured out it's a problem with my hosting( tried it out on my other account and it works fine).
Just curious but what problem with hosting? I am troubleshooting a similar problem and started a thread about it asking exactly that in a "What else could I be missing kind of way". This of course is an old thread but anyone can feel free to comment as to what my host may be blocking to why my videos never stream when using progressive download (not flash media server).
Can you direct download the video file by using the URL of the video file (not the video player but the video file itself), such as:
That's one of the very first steps in troubleshooting the issue... can the file be downloaded.
