Video, WordPress, and IE

Are your online streaming videos not appearing in your WordPress site when visitors view it using Internet Explorer? Here's the solution.

Look for the part of your HTML source code that looks like this (I've replaced angled brackets with square brackets so that the code appears):

[object width="240" height="250" codebase="http://download.macromedia...." data="URL of your SWF file"]

While such code continues to display the online video on Firefox browsers, IE simply displays a blank box. You'll need to add the following to your object tag:

[object width="240" height="250" codebase="http://download.macromedia...." data="URL of your SWF file" type="application/x-shockwave-flash"]

With that simple tweak, even Internet Explorer users will be able to view your streaming video. Happy video blogging on WordPress!
