Hello -

This is my first time actually post to the forums here, so I apologize in advance for any mistakes.

I'm maintaining a website running Drupal 6, using videojs module 2.2 with video.js 3.2. I'm having a problem getting videos to display in IE8. (IE7 is working fine - I'm not sure about IE9.) When I open a page with a video on it in IE8, the video loads correctly only if I have just cleared the browser cache, or if I hard refresh with CTRL-F5. I've googled my heart out, but I just can't find any solutions that have any impact.

I am calling the player using the php script here: https://gist.github.com/1234342

Any help or ideas anyone has would be most appreciated.

Can I see the page with this behavior somewhere online?

Here the a video page, representing the same problem: http://www.smartpolicinginitiative.com/test-video

(The video on the "real" page is not yet approved for public release.)

Oh, and thank you ever so much in advance for taking a look. This problem is driving me nuts.

I've been continuing to work on this problem, and I thought I'd throw out there two things that didn't work, in hopes of narrowing the problem down.

I inserted javascript to force a reload upon opening the page - this did not solve the problem. Here is the code I tried:

window.onload = function()
if (!window.location.search)
setTimeout("window.location+='?refreshed';", .1000);

I also used the html meta code to force the page to load from the server and that didn't work either.

Meanwhile, using CTRL+F5 continues to work every time.

It is a very strange problem. I have not yet had the time to look into it, sorry.

Is this still a problem for you?

For me the Flash fallback for HTML5 supported video formats works fine in IE8. There is no need to call the player using a third-party PHP script - this is this module's job. Thus I am closing this issue to clean up to queue. Feel free to reopen it, however, if - like Jorrit asked - this is still a problem.
