I have a website:

I'm using Flowplayer to play a h.264 encoded video. This works on all browzers including ios devices.

The problem is with Internet Explorer. I'm running ie 9 and the video won't play unless the user turns on compatibility mode.

I'm using a Wordpress plugin JVPress.

I want to wave a magic wand and make is so my video plays automatically in any version of IE 7 and above.

And advice?

This question seems to be off topic here on SuperUser, it should maybe migrated to wordpress.SE or webapps.SE. – Baarn Sep 4 '12 at 12:29

From here it appears you're actually using Longtail's JW Player, version 5.3.1397.

You should update to a newer version (they're up to v5.10), as the IE9 compatibility bug was reportedly fixed around v5.5.

You can check it out at their home page for more info and to obtain a newer version.
