Plug-in seems incompatible with IE 7, exceeds set height in the <embed> tags. Used a workaround by adding a
style="height:27px; overflow:hidden;" to the embed tag to prevent it taking up the entire web page. This also seemed to remove the black bar above the player displaying in the flash version in Firefox and IE8. Would be great if fixed in a next version of the plug-in, so I can update it.
