    Question Video player Changes size in IE ? Huge problem

    Hey everyone. I am the owner of a site http://www.tormented.tv
    Its a music videos site that opperates much like that of any of the other sites like youtube and myspace video.

    I am with help working to rebuild my video player page but we have ran into a problem thats had work stalled for over a week now. In firefox the video looks and plays perfect BUT when viewed with Internet Explorer the video shrinks!
    and it seems no matter what i do...it is not working.
    Here is a link to a random video page on my site...the Image for the player is the EXACT size the video SHOULD be ....once you click to play the video watch the size differience between the image you click and the video that displays....
    http://www.tormented.tv/video.php?id=962&p=

    I have NO idea what is causing this...

    Here is the piece of code that i am using to tell the video what size i want it......I really need some help here. If anyone can shed some light on this issue i would greatly apprecate it


    Code:
    
    
    <div style="clear:both;"> </div>
    
      <div id="player" style="width:600px; height:300px; padding:30px 0px 0px 65px;">
      <a id="player1" style="cursor:pointer;"><img src="/cimages/flowback.jpg" alt="Play this video" title="Play this video" /></a>
      <script language='javascript'>
    flowplayer("player1", "/flowplayer/flowplayer-3.0.0-rc3.swf", {
    	clip: {
    		url: '/videos/<?=$vid?>',
    		// when this is false playback does not start until play button is pressed
    		autoPlay: true
    	}
    });
    </script>

    Yeah this has nothing to do with PHP, but a little tip for you. IE sucks and don't recommend coding for it.

    well thats not a very useful tip, since most people use IE, developers really have no choise but to code for it.

    thanks angst for moving my post. I am very sry for the mistake..I posted it into the PHP forum because i wasnt sure if it was something in the PHP/Html that was causing it or in fact if it was the flash player its self causing the issue. I guess we will try it here.

    I do need help and i CANNOT ignore the fact that it dont look right in IE. It looks perfect in firefox...So i know its an IE problem and i know that most of you coders perfer other browsers. I am here looking for help with MY site. Its important to have it look its best in IE because 95% of my users use IE.

    Well its the holidays, and some of us were on vacation so I hope you're still checking this.

    In my signature is another method of embedding Flash. I would suggest you try that first and let us know.
