The media player begins loading the video file but does not appear to finish so the video could be played. The error occurs when using the IE7 browser under Windows 7. The player works as expected for IE8/IE9, Chrome, Firefox, and Safari (on all device types PC, iPhone and iPad).

It appears that everything is being defined correctly if you look at the generated code. It does seem that the player is not getting the indicator that video is ready to be played.

We are using MediaFront 7.x.2.0-alpha 4, Media 7.x-1.0, Drupal Core 7.12, Media: YouTube 7.x.1.0-beta3

Added the IE8 to IE9

Title:The media player does not play using EI7The media player does not play using IE7

Title:The media player does not play using IE7The media player does not play using IE7 -Content Type, Display Field Formatter

Same issue when using the content type field formatter "Mediafront Player" mine is on a Media 1.0 field. And using a YouTube video as a source.

In IE7 it's trying to load showing the loader graphic similar to the Preset Preview. IE8+, Firefox, Chrome, Safari, Opera all seem to work just fine with this field formatter implementation.

Version:7.x-2.0-alpha4» 7.x-2.0-alpha5

I am having the same issue in IE8 and IE9. Not anything else. Just IE

*Dreams of a day when IE is either in line with the other browsers or does not exist anymore*

For those having issues with IE9, look at #1536232: Media player not visible in IE9.

It appears that there are some missing "http:" in front of the following entries:

and the http://youtube.com is missing from in the "iframe" code generated.

The following is the updated code and this code plays the video in dreamweaver. The one thing is that the controls are not visible.

I am confused,

When you say "It appears that there are some missing "http:" in front of the following entries:", are you referring to the code you pasted or the code generated by mediafront? Also, can you copy & paste the code that it is generating that isn't working for you from mediafront so that I can discern between what works and what doesn't work?

Thanks,

Travis.

Travist,

Sorry for the confusion. The code generated by mediafront did not work. The code in the paste is what was working for me.
