I'm trying to view this page in IE9. It has flash videos embedded but for some reason the Quicktime Plugin, not the Flash plugin, is being used to play them (which obviously doesn't work, and Quicktime throws an error). How can I tell IE9 to use the proper plugin? I have Flash installed and updated to the latest version. Rudimentary troubleshooting such as using compatability view does nothing.
Here's the embed code the site is using:
<embed src="http://blip.tv/play/huARgpiyHwA%2Em4v" type="application/x-shockwave-flash" height="360" width="580" allowscriptaccess="always" allowfullscreen="true"></embed>
A few additional items of information:
- I'm using Windows 7 and opening the MIME/File Type Settings for Quicktime just brings up the Windows Control Panel for filetype associations. There is no option for Flash content or .swf that I can see.
- Reinstalling Flash doesn't fix the problem.
- Disabling the Quicktime plugin from the IE addons window doesn't correct the behavior, instead IE simply doesn't load any plugin at all.
- Uninstalling Quicktime DOES work. With no Quicktime on my system IE will use Flash just fine. Unfortuantely however, I need to keep Quicktime around.
- The page I linked is the only page I've seen that has this problem. Every other Flash video I've seen on the internet has played properly.
- This might be an IE-specific bug, since Firefox plays the media properly with the Flash plugin.
