Why won't these embedded youTube videos play in IE9?

I have this web page here with 3 embedded videos.

I have them working within fancybox so that they launch in their own window and autoplay nicely.

They work flawlessly on every browser except IE.

Can someone please tell me why these aren't working in IE?

    In your source code, can you remove this line in at the top and try again?
    <meta http-equiv="X-UA-Compatible" content="IE=9" />

    Open in new window

    Removing that line will allow IE9 to run in compatibility mode (click the compatibility button next to the address bar).  If it works in that mode, then it may be a limitation on YouTube's end.

    This page below has the list of different IE modes that you can experiment with if that helps:

    Thanks for the response.

    Should I use any of those compatibility statements?
