Why isn't the YOUTUBE video embeded on my website working in IE?

Hi Experts,

Why isn't the video I have embedded on a homepage I'm working on working in IE?

It works in FF, and Safari, but not IE

Thanks,

you need to install the IE flash drivers.  just go to youtube.com and click on a video.  it will then ask you to install the drivers.  you probably have them installed in firefox and safari already.

Of course my Site5 server is currently down!  So I can't test it now.  I'm on a Mac and don't have IE on my computer.  I have another Laptop with IE.  Do I have to do it on that laptop or something with the website?  My main concern is that others who don't have the driver installed that they will just get a red x also in place of the video.

yes you need the laptop to have the drivers, not the explorer.  i am pretty sure anyways.  well you just need to have IE have flash installed to it.  and they install that to your hard drive, so yes your laptop needs to have it.

so the websites are up and running again... I checked out the laptop and it does have the drivers loaded.... I have other websites with embedded youtube videos on them and they work fine.  Just with this website.  Not sure why...

the youtube video worked fine for me.  it must be something to do with your code.  you need to enable it for IE.  do you have the latest IE?  maybe it is the new version of IE 9 that is needing different code i am guessing since im guessing you created the other websites with IE 8?  am i right?  i bet any money it has something to do with IE 9.

I updated the embeded link with the latest code from youtube.  The one that I had was considered their, "older" version.  And yup... the laptop had IE9 installed on it.

Thanks for your time and help!
