I have converted a .flv movie to .swf using Sothink's Video Encoder. I have added a "skin" to the .flv and it plays fine in Firefox. It does not play fine in IE6, 7, or 8. In IE, sometimes the skin shows up, and sometimes it does not. This is happening on the server, and if I take the output HTML file from the video encoder and drag it to IE. It seems to be hit and miss.
Also, some suggestions are to make sure to include the new .swf file made by video encoder and the new .flv made by encoder in the same folder. I have tried this, did not make a difference. Any ideas?
