Site needs some work, but what I specifically need tested right now is how well Internet Explorer and Safari deal with my method of embedding multimedia.

I only use Linux and do not have access to those browsers, except for IE through wine, where it seemed like it was not capable of streaming the media - but that may have been a wine issue.

Multimedia is here:

After testing the LQ version if video, click on SD - tab - it should take you to a page dedicated to that video that starts buffering immediately, and you should see it buffering.

Thank you for your assistance.

IE indeed doesn't work. If you want to develop for the web seriously, I highly advise you to use a "virtual machine". This allows you to run an instance of Windows inside Linux.

I'm going to guess IE is having issues with the audio tags and video tags. You will need to hide those from IE some how.

While this is for a quicktime video, the concept is the same.
