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..
<?xml version="1.0"?>

<!DOCTYPE cross-domain-policy SYSTEM

"http://www.macromedia.com/xml/dtds/cross-domain-policy.dtd">

<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..
