I am running Joomla's latest version 1.5.8. on our site: http://www.pack250topeka.org After I installed and enabled the mod_simple_video_flash_player module it says "Operation aborted" and closes the browser and sometimes it loads. It works fine in Firefox but only loads once in a while on IE7. Please, any ideas??

From a quick look at your headers, you are missing a file: crossdomain.xml

This should fix the problem:

1. Create a new file called "crossdomain.xml"
2. Pase the code snippet into this file (only have the code snippet in the file, nothing else)
3. Upload.. The file should be in: http://pack250topeka.org/crossdomain.xml

Let me know if this solved it. Cheers..

<!DOCTYPE cross-domain-policy SYSTEM

<cross-domain-policy>
<allow-access-from domain="*" />
</cross-domain-policy>

What IE version? Didn't crash for me on IE7 or IE8, just saw the video wasn't loading.

See if this makes any difference..
// FIND THIS
							<script language="javascript"  type="text/javascript" ><!--
	function navLoaded(elem, modid){
		myspan = document.getElementById("testspan"+modid);
		modbody = myspan.parentNode;
		modbody.innerHTML=elem.innerHTML;
	}
	function callNavigation(link){
		body = document.getElementsByTagName('body')[0];
		if (!document.getElementById('calnav')){
			iframe = document.createElement('iframe');
			iframe.setAttribute("name","calnav");
			iframe.setAttribute("id","calnav");
			iframe.style.display = "none";
		}
		body.appendChild(iframe);
		iframe.setAttribute("src",link);
	}
	//--></script>
 
// REPLACE WITH THIS
 
<script language="javascript"  type="text/javascript" ><!--
	isReady = false;
	window.addEventListener("load", function() { isReady = true; }, false);
 
	function navLoaded(elem, modid){
		myspan = document.getElementById("testspan"+modid);
		modbody = myspan.parentNode;
		modbody.innerHTML=elem.innerHTML;
	}
	function callNavigation(link){
		if (!isReady){
			return false;
		}
		body = document.getElementsByTagName('body')[0];
		if (!document.getElementById('calnav')){
			iframe = document.createElement('iframe');
			iframe.setAttribute("name","calnav");
			iframe.setAttribute("id","calnav");
			iframe.style.display = "none";
		}
		body.appendChild(iframe);
		iframe.setAttribute("src",link);
}
	//--></script>

Wow, I don't know where to begin to look for that.  It's within my Joomla components somewhere, I just don't know where.

lol I've been there.. CMS software can be a pain to navigate.

If it's any help, I'm pretty sure the issue is that JS appendChild block. It's documented..
